    Chargers begin to rebuild backfield

    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on March 8, 2010 7:22 PM ET
    The San Diego Chargers claimed Marcus Mason from the Redskins off waivers Monday, according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune.

    The team is desperate to add bodies to the backfield, whether they ultimately keep Darren Sproles or not.

    This is a start. Mason has 32 carries for the Redskins last season and could ultimately compete for the team's No. 3 or No. 4 running back role.

    If Mason winds up any higher on the depth chart, Chargers G.M. A.J. Smith will have had a very bad offseason.

    To be honest, everyone said the same thing about Ryan Grant when GB claimed him off waiver from the Giants, and he is a very good back.

    I have no idea who this guy is, but I for one am not going to place judgement on him until he gets here and fails or succeeds

    if Sproles gets traded, he could be our 3rd down back possibly. We'll see what he's got and hey, maybe he pulls a Ryan Grant and goes from practice squad to top dog

    Just a little move to replace Michael Bennett.

    Kevin Acee's just told that Mason worked with Norv's brother
    Ron at Youngstown. MAybe it's only a family affair, not to have a empty backfield. AJ will get a RB in the draft !
