    For the second consecutive year, the Chargers used free agency to help the safety position.

    The Chargers reached a five-year, $16 million agreement Saturday night with Panthers safety <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=5681">Marlon McCree</a>. Included in the deal is $6 million in roster bonuses over the first two years of the contract.

    Last year, the Chargers brought in <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=5518">Bhawoh Jue</a> from the Packers and he helped to improve the secondary. McCree was brought in with the idea of playing free safety but he also has the versatility to play at strong safety.

    Though the Chargers have $24 million of cap room, they are not going to be big players in free agency. McCree is expected to be their biggest signing. The Chargers prefer to build through the draft and spot free agency moves and spend their money in re-signings and extensions.
