The San Diego Chargers signed veteran cornerback Chris Carr to a one-year contract, the team announced Tuesday.

"Chris is an experienced player," coach Norv Turner said in a release. "He's been a starter so he brings experience. He can play in the slot and on the outside. He's a good addition for us."

The Chargers have had injury problems at the cornerback position. Starting cornerback Quintin Jammer and backup Shareece Wright both have been battling injuries.

"I'm extremely excited to join the Chargers," Carr said in the release. "I know a lot of coaches on this staff and a lot of players. They're a contender and a good team that competes year after year."

Carr spent training camp with the Minnesota Vikings before being among their final cuts.

Carr played in seven games, including one start, for Baltimore last season, and he started 16 games for the Ravens in 2010.
