The San Diego Chargers announced today that they have signed veteran defensive tackle Ian Scott. Scott has been plagued by injuries the past two years, so much so that his last NFL game was back in 2006. He was drafted in 2003 to the Chicago Bears, and has familiarity with linebackers coach Ron Rivera, who was the defensive coordinator in Chicago at the time.
Scott was cut this year by the Carolina Panthers after spraining his knee in training camp. He missed all of 2007 with a knee injury while with the Philadelphia Eagles.
At 6’3” 300lbs, Scott has the size to play any position on the Chargers defensive line. He does bring veteran experience and his aforementioned versatility will be an asset for the club. But the only thing that has me scratching my head is why add a guy known to be injury prone to a line that has Jamal Williams’ shaky knees and Luis Castillo’s injury past? Regardless, hopefully Scott contributes this year in rotation and helps get the Chargers defense shored up.
