Bio

The Chargers added an experienced center and guard to their rotation when they inked Ohrnberger, a former Arizona Cardinal, to a one-year deal in March.   

The 6-2, 300-pounder from Penn State has played in 18 career games and started four. He was drafted by the New England Patriots in the fourth round of the 2009 NFL Draft following a collegiate career during which he was a two-time All-Big Ten choice and a third-team All-America selection as a senior. Ohrnberger played in five games his first two seasons with the Patriots, seeing limited time at right guard and on special teams. He spent the 2011 season on Reserve-Injured with the Patriots due to a head injury and was released in February 2012. He signed with Arizona on Aug. 1, 2012 and played in 13 games, making two starts at both right guard and center. He suffered a knee injury on Dec. 9 against Seattle and was again placed on Reserve-Injured on Dec. 10.  

Ohrnberger’s reputation for comedy and off-color humor dates back to his college days at Penn State. He has become somewhat of a cult figure on twitter for his off-color tweets and is followed by more than 26,000 fans on the social media site @ohrnberger. While at Penn State, Ohrnberger once impersonated a teammate during a media conference call and he performed a live stand-up comedy routine at the Hollywood Improv during team activities leading up to the Nittany Lions appearance in the 2009 Rose Bowl.
