Biography

The versatile Chris Hairston originally joined the Chargers on a one-year contract in 2015 and he became one of the team’s most valuable performers on the offensive line. He played in all 16 games and started 11. As injuries wreaked havoc on the Chargers' offensive line, Hairston saw time everywhere on the offensive line except center. He started nine games at left tackle, one at left guard, one at right guard, and also saw time at right tackle.

Hairston proved to be equal parts tough and versatile. He played through a myriad of injuries to appear in every game, but none was more impressive than his performance against Green Bay on Oct. 18. Six days after suffering a severe ankle injury during a Monday Night Football game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Hairston defied the odds and started the following Sunday in Green Bay, where he played a season-high 92 snaps as Philip Rivers set franchise records for attempts, completions and yards. His gritty performance caused an emotional Rivers to tear up after the game.

In March, the Chargers agreed to a new two-year contract with Hairston.

Hairston has a son, Chris Jr., and a daughter, Chloe. He is engaged to Carmen Baldwin. The couple plans to wed in July 2017.

Hairston’s second cousin is Baylor University guard-forward Ishmail Wainright, who started all 34 games for the Bears as a junior in 2015-16.
