Chargers sign Moll for offensive line, release Gamble
Press ReleaseThe San Diego Chargers have signed offensive lineman Tony Moll to a one-year contract. To make room on the roster, the team released rookie linebacker Darryl Gamble.
The move provides San Diego with insurance along the offensive line after the Chargers finished Thursday’s game against Oakland without three of its starters.
Left tackle Marcus McNeill left on a cart after a hard collision and missed snaps due to a neck injury for the second time this season. Kamerion Wimbley made four sacks for the Raiders in his absence. Left guard Kris Dielman (concussion) missed his third-consecutive game last week and Louis Vasquez (ankle) also could not finish last week’s game.
Moll, 6-foot-5 and 315 pounds, played in 60 NFL games from 2006-10 with the Green Bay Packers and Baltimore Ravens. He also spent training camp with Jacksonville this season. Moll has started 12 games at right guard, seven at right tackle and two at tight end.
Moll will wear No. 75 for the Chargers.
Gamble played in three games after making the opening-day roster as a college free agent. Impressive in preseason, Gamble played mostly special teams.
