Chargers Sign Crawford, Release Marshall

2:54pm: The Chargers agreed to terms with cornerback Richard Crawford, a source tells Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego (on Twitter). The Oceanside, California native and former Washignton defensive back will take Marshall’s spot on the roster and depth chart.

Crawford was waived by Washington earlier this month and had an audition with the Bucs soon after.

2:04pm: The Chargers have released cornerback Richard Marshall, a league source tells Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk (on Twitter).

Marshall, 30 in December, has appeared in eight games with one start for San Diego this season. A veteran of nine seasons, Marshall has 80 games and 46 starts on his resume. Going by the basic stats, his best seasons came in 2009 and 2010 for the Panthers, where he had a combined seven interceptions, 17 pass deflections, one forced fumble, and 176 tackles.

The advanced stats haven’t been so kind to him this season. Pro Football Focus (subscription required) rates Marshall 90th out of 107 cornerbacks in 2014.

    I do feel for Marshall. It’s tough to ask him to come in off the bench and try to cover a speed guy like Sanders.
