Chargers to sign 21 undrafted free agents

Posted Apr 30, 2012

SAN DIEGO – The draft’s conclusion Saturday was no time to take break. In fact, the frenzied weekend may have risen a notch.

The Chargers’ staff continued working, agreeing to contracts with 21 college free agents who were not selected through the draft’s seven rounds.

The additions include LSU quarterback Jarrett Lee, six receivers, three offensive tackles, Rice punter Kyle Martens and Tennessee long snapper Nick Guess.

Lee, who helped the Tigers to a 9-0 start in 2011 as the starter, gave way to Jordan Jefferson late in the season despite leading LSU to a 6-3 overtime win over Alabama and completing 62.3 percent of his passes with 13 touchdowns against three interceptions.

Lee finished No. 1 in the SEC last season for passer rating among quarterbacks with at least 150 attempts.

Among the 21 is Logan Harrell, Ryan Mathews’ former teammate at Fresno State. Harrell, a 6-foot-2, 278-pound defensive tackle, made 16.5 sacks and 31 tackles for loss the last two seasons for the Bulldogs.

Houston running back Michael Hayes, another productive player, averaged 5.3 yards per carry, caught 44 passes and scored 15 touchdowns in 2011. Hayes’ godfather, Jack Youngblood, is a Hall of Fame defensive end who played for the Los Angeles Rams.

The Chargers also signed a pair of UCLA Bruins in receiver Taylor Embree and offensive tackle Michael Harris, USC defensive end Christian Tupou and Cal free safety Sean Cattouse.

Five of the six receivers are taller than 6-foot-2.

Cordell Bell, a 6-foot-3, 315-pound offensive tackle from Minnesota State-Mankato, is the lone Division II player of the group.
