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.

Dunlap and Phillips signed their deals Tuesday.

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.
