Chargers sign free-agent guard Ohrnberger
The San Diego Chargers signed former Arizona Cardinals guard
Rich Ohrnberger to a one-year contract Thursday.
Heading into his fifth season, he has played in 18 career games
and started four.
He was drafted by New England in the fourth round in 2009 out of
Penn State. He played in five games his first two seasons with the
Patriots, seeing limited time at right guard and on special teams.
Ohrnberger spent the 2011 season on injured reserve due to a head
injury and was released in February 2012. He signed with Arizona
and played in 13 games last year, making two starts at both right
guard and center. He suffered a knee injury on Dec. 9 against
Seattle and was placed on injured reserve.
Ohrnberger becomes the sixth unrestricted free agent to join the
Chargers, and the third offensive lineman.
