QB Kellen Clemens Returns to the Chargers

A busy Wednesday at Chargers Park continued as the team re-signed QB Kellen Clemens to a one-year contract.

The 10-year veteran has spent the past two seasons backing up Philip Rivers, serving as an experienced sounding board for number 17.

Originally a second-round pick of the New York Jets in 2006, the 6-2, 220-pound passer has appeared in 44 career games with 21 starts.  He's completed 344 of 629 career attempts for 4,017 yards and 16 touchdowns.  He completed five of six passes for 63 yards and one score last season.

Clemens is the sixth player the Chargers have added during the free agency period. The team also added wide receiver Travis Benjamin (Cleveland Browns), nose tackle Brandon Mebane (Seattle Seahawks) and free safety Dwight Lowery (Indianapolis Colts), and retained right tackle Joe Barksdale and tight end Antonio Gates.
