Chargers bolster defense with DT Mebane & FS Lowery

Seahawks Defensive Tackle Brandon Mebane

The San Diego Chargers went into free agency with needs on both sides of the ball, and just a couple of hours into it they’ve already solved a lot of them via free agency.

Dwight Lowery, with 72 starts under his belt, will likely be the guy to take the spot of Eric Weddle in the Chargers defense. He played with the Colts last year but has also been on the Jets, Jaguars, and Falcons.

Brandon Mebane has started 125 games, all as a Defensive Tackle for the Seattle Seahawks, and is expected to take over as the team’s starting Nose Tackle.

These defensive signings came after two morning signings, Antonio Gates and Travis Benjamin, that bolstered the team’s passing offense.

The team is still likely looking for a Cornerback, and help along both the Offensive Line and Defensive line, but now they have less needs to address in the 2016 NFL Draft.
