Chargers sign veteran OT Terry to bolster line

SAN DIEGO -- The Chargers signed veteran offensive tackle Adam Terry to a one-year contract Sunday and released tackle Ryan Otterson.

Terry was cut by the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday. He played with the Baltimore Ravens from 2005 to 2009.

This is the Chargers' second attempt at adding veteran depth at tackle to help fill the void left by Marcus McNeill's holdout. They signed Tra Thomas in June, but he retired on Aug. 21.

Unhappy that he hasn't received a long-term deal, McNeill might sit out the entire season.

The Chargers also signed eight players to the practice squad Sunday. Among them were quarterback Jonathan Crompton and tight end Dedrick Epps, two draft picks who were cut Saturday.
