The Chargers reported deals with back-up tight end John Phillips from Dallas and former Philly offensive lineman King Dunlap weren't exactly front page material.
What headlined Tuesday, the league's version of New Year's Day, was the signing of former Chargers lineman Louis Vasquez by the Denver Broncos. The division rivals threw big money at the O-lineman, signing Vasquez to a 4-year deal worth 23.5-million dollars, 13-million of which was guaranteed.
Vasquez started all 16-games for the Bolts in 2012. His departure weakens what was already a thin Chargers O-line.
As expected the Chargers said good-bye to tight end Randy McMichael and defensive tackle Antonio Garay, saving the team 1.5-million and 5-million in salary cap space respectively.
