Vasher nearing deal with Chargers

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

After being unceremoniously dumped by the Bears earlier this month, Nathan Vasher is hoping a reunion with a coach under whom he thrived will help him resuscitate his career.

Vasher is nearing a deal with the San Diego Chargers, according to a source close to the situation.

Ron Rivera, the former Bears defensive coordinator, is currently serving in that same capacity with the Chargers.

Vasher, a fourth-round pick of the Bears in 2004, had five interceptions as a rookie and a career-high eight interceptions in 2005. Rivera was the coordinator of the Bears both seasons.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that Vasher would provide depth for the Chargers, especially after trading Antonio Cromartie to the New York Jets earlier in the off-season.

Vasher is also familiar with Steve Wilks, the Bears defensive backs coach from 2006 to 2008.
