Chargers Sign Four Draft Picks

Pro Football Talk.com reports that the Chargers have come to terms with four of their draft picks from April’s Draft:

The San Diego Chargers officially announced today that they have signed four rookie draft picks to four-year contracts.

That includes third-round offensive guard Louis Vasquez as well as a trio of fourth-round selections defensive lineman Vaughn Martin, offensive guard Tyronne Green and running back Gartrell Johnson.

Green received a signing bonus of nearly $410,000, according to a league source.

We previously reported that Vasquez’s contract includes a signing bonus of nearly $800,000 and carries a total value of $2.55 million. And Martin’s deal is worth $2.236 million and includes a $486,000 signing bonus.

The transactions means that the Chargers have just three remaining unsigned draft picks: first-round outside linebacker Larry English, sixth-round safety Kevin Ellison and seventh-round wide receiver Demetrius Byrd.

Meanwhile, the team announced that undrafted rookie free agent linebacker Anthony Felder was re-signed after being cut in June.
