If it's who I think it is he's a pretty solid backup signing. Not a bad move.

isn't Hangartner our RG?

Yes but that isn't to say that if Kalil was out, it would be easier to stick a backup in at RG than at center. It's been done before in the NFL.

Still kinda odd we would sign a vet like him and he's started 16 games or so, instead of hurney scrub.

btoh MRIs came back negative

I know, but there was a reason they got an MRI.

They may need someone to take some temporary reps in practice

He played some C here before and when he left Carolina I think he went fulltime at C

Hangartner and Pollack have played center. Probably just for preseason depth.

My guess is it serves two purposes:
1) Assuming Kalil sits for a game or two due to some soft tissue owwie, we need someone to take the reps, and...
2) Rather than just sign another young guy without a clue, they went the veteran route to try to motivate better play by Byers.

But who knows. Maybe he's just Ron's best bud and they want to party in Manhattan next week when we visit the Jets.

Another Chargers' scrub.
Never sign the good ones, only the scrubs.

I would call Tolbert and Applewhite exceptions.
