Bolts Bring Back Guard/Tackle Kenny Wiggins

After adding one of the top left tackles on the market in Russell Okung earlier in free agency, the Bolts continued to beef up the offensive line by re-signing reserve lineman Kenny Wiggins to a one-year deal.

Wiggins' versatility has proven valuable to the Chargers the past two seasons with his ability to play all five positions up front. 

Originally signed by San Francisco as an undrafted free agent in 2011, the 6-6, 314-pound product out of Fresno State spent time on the 49ers and Baltimore Ravens' practice squads his first two seasons. He eventually joined the Chargers in the same capacity in 2013.  However, with his practice squad eligibility used up, Wiggins spent most of 2014 out of football before returning to the team at the end of the season.  He made his NFL debut on special teams in the season finale.

The Chargers waived Wiggins after the 2015 preseason , but he returned to the team following the season-opening victory over the Detroit Lions.  Wiggins appeared in the remaining 15 games, including eight starts at both guard positions.  He played a total 401 snaps that season, which were the fifth most among the team's offensive linemen. Wiggins played in 13 games a year ago with one start while again seeing time at multiple spots up front.
