Michael Schofield provided invaluable depth last year along the offensive line, which is why the Chargers agreed to terms on a two-year deal with the veteran tackle on Wednesday.
Schofield appeared in 15 games in 2017 after being claimed off waivers from the Denver Broncos one week prior to the start of the season. He started five games, including a four-game stretch from Week 7-11.
A 6-6, 301-pound product out of Michigan, Schofield entered the NFL as the Broncos' third-round pick (95th overall) in the 2014 NFL Draft. He started all 29 games he appeared in for Denver from 2015-16, including the team's Super Bowl 50 victory over the Carolina Panthers.
Schofield is the third free agent the Chargers have brought back into the fold so far, joining LB Nick Dzubnar and WR Geremy Davis.
