Vasher signs two-year deal with Chargers

The San Diego Chargers announced they have signed former Bears cornerback Nathan Vasher.

I'm told he signed a two-year deal worth about $4.5 million.

He was due to make $2.95 million from the Bears, until they released him earlier this month.

"We're adding a proven NFL player with experience in the league," Chargers general manager A.J. Smith said, in a brief statement released on the team's Twitter site.

Meanwhile, the Bears signed exclusive-rights free agents Kahlil Bell, Tim Shaw and Matt Toeaina, they announced today.

Now watch this guy become all-pro.

I hope so... GO CHARGERS!!!

Yes, I don't know about All Pro but I would bet dollars to donuts that he improves considerably after leaving Chicago.

It seems to be the track record for a number that have left.

If I'm the Chargers, I just want him healthly enough to stay on the field for 16 games.....He was good in his time as a Bear, but I don't this this is a player we'll be blogging about in November......

With jennings we get a younger player who can help in multiple areas, Vasher was strickly a corner and not able to play major roles on special teams, and at the nickel.....I wish him well !.....go BEARS

For a guy that cant play nickle, cant play special teams, cant tackle on run support, and cant run like he use too that is a tad bit of money Chargers spent on him. I was almost sure he was gonna sign a min. contract with somebody. This sounds like a Bobble Head Ron Rivara move to me.

Vasher did a good job for the Bears, and I wish him well as long as it's not against the Bears. I don't know a lot about the guys the Bears signed as exclusive free agents, but the management must have solid expectations of them. Let's hope they pan out and provide solid depth for the Bears.

Don't regret the move. That said, you guys are right.....he'll make an impact for the Chargers this year. Just more fuel for the huge bonfire representing the misuse and poor talent evaluation by the Bears decision-makers.

Now, if they could get rid of the rest of that miss-tackling defensive backfield and start over they might accomplish something this football season.

You would be amazed as to what can happen once a player is surrouded by better talent and coaching. He won't even look the same.

"cant play special teams"


Vasher can return punts and kicks. He is tied with Devin Hester for having the longest return in Franchise history at 108 yards. He did it a Soldier field in that 40+ mile an hour wind game vs the 49'rs

Go Bears !!

He'll get cut before the season starts, you watch!
