    Chargers sign former Raiders tackle

    The wait is over.

    Mario Henderson will attempt his career comeback in San Diego after all.

    The former Raiders tackle signed a one-year deal with the Chargers on Friday morning, two days after the team set Monday as a deadline to accept its offer.

    Henderson, 27, has appeared in 44 games and started 28 since entering the league in 2007. He saw his most significant action in 2009, starting 16 games on the left side.

    Listed at 6-foot-7 and 300 pounds, Henderson was out of the NFL last season after reportedly arriving at Raiders camp out of shape. He kept active by playing for the Colorado Ice of the Indoor Football League.

    He'll receive a fresh start in the NFL under offensive line coaches Hal Hunter and Mike Sullivan.

    Tackle Brandyn Dombrowski, a restricted free agent, and long snapper Mike Windt, an exclusive rights free agent, also signed their one-year deals, as expected. Henderson and Dombrowski join center Colin Baxter and tackle Stephen Schilling as the offensive line's reserves.

    Henderson is the 15th unrestricted free agent to join the Chargers since March 13. Only four of the acquisitions play defense.

    The team begins offseason workouts later this month.
