The San Diego Chargers announced Friday that they agreed to a contract with cornerback Richard Marshall.
Terms were not disclosed.
Marshall played in four games last year with the Miami Dolphins and had 17 tackles, one interception and one pass breakup before a back injury ended his season.
The Dolphins cut Marshall this week after attempts to trade him failed. He had five tackles and one pass breakup in three preseason games. He signed a three-year, $16 million deal with Miami last year.
Marshall was drafted in the third round in 2006 out of Fresno State by the Carolina Panthers and spent five years there. He then played for the Arizona Cardinals in 2011 before heading to Miami. He has 451 tackles, 57 pass breakups, 18 interceptions and seven sacks in his career.
Chargers secondary coach Ron Milus served in the same role for Carolina the last two years that Marshall was there.
Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt was head coach of the Cardinals in 2011.
