Chargers Claim CB Bennett, Waive DL Bingham

And so the cutdown of the defensive line begins…

Defensive lineman Ryon Bingham has been waived as the Chargers continue to work towards finalizing their 53-man roster by the beginning of the regular season.

After doing so, they filled the roster spot by claiming cornerback Fred Bennett off of waivers from the Houston Texans.

Bennett, a fourth-round draft pick in 2007, has had plenty of NFL experience and could add some depth and veteran experience to the Chargers secondary.

Last year with the Texans, Bennett totalled 18 tackles in ten games, including three starts.

Thoughout his three years in the NFL, he has played in 40 games, including 17 starts. During that time, he has tallied 111 tackles, five interceptions, 24 pass deflections, and four forced fumbles.
