Rinehart joins Dunlap, Phillips with Bolts

The San Diego Chargers agreed to terms on a four-year contract

with cornerback Derek Cox, who had 12 interceptions the last four

years with Jacksonville.

The deal reportedly is worth $20 million.

Cox, 26, had four picks in 12 games last year. He’s expected to

slide into the starting lineup. Both of San Diego’s starting

cornerbacks, Quentin Jammer and Antoine Cason, are expected to

leave as unrestricted free agents.

Also Wednesday, the Chargers signed former Buffalo Bills guard

Chad Rinehart to a one-year, $1.75 million contract.

Rinehart’s signing came a day after former Philadelphia Eagles

Cowboys tight end John Phillips agreed to a three-year contract.

Dunlap and Phillips signed their deals Tuesday.

Rinehart is being reunited with his former position coaches in

seven games and two starts at right guard in 2012 due to an ankle

injury that landed him on injured reserve on Nov. 2.

his one-year tender as an exclusive-rights free agent.
