Marquez: I’m happy to be playing at the right time and the right place for the Chargers
The Chargers have signed veteran tight end Marquez Crockett to a two-year deal worth $4 million, the team announced.
Crocket will earn $2.3 million in base salary, $1.4 million in incentives and $750,000 in roster bonuses.
Crocker has spent most of his career with the Chargers, having played in four games for the team over the last three seasons.
Croke was the Chargers top tight end last season, catching 19 passes for 231 yards and three touchdowns.
The 27-year-old is one of three Chargers to sign with the team this offseason.
The other two are fullback Ben Tavenner and defensive end Dante Rosario.
The Chargers signed offensive tackle Darrion Owens to a one-year, $2 million deal in the offseason.
Owens, 26, spent most last season with the New Orleans Saints, but has played in just two games this season.
Owens has started all four games this year.
With Crockette, the Chargers have three tight ends on the roster: left tackle Austin Pasztor, center David Harris and tight end Logan Stokes.
They also signed wide receiver Andre Holmes.
With the team having signed tight end Travis Kelce to a three-year contract in the off-season, the position of tight end is also on the chopping block.
The Bolts signed tight ends Mike McGlinchey and Matt LaCosse last season.
McGlincey was signed to a five-year extension in 2016, but LaCosstse played in two games for San Diego last season due to a neck injury.
