The team on Thursday announced that former St. Louis Rams signal-caller Kellen Clemens has agreed to terms on a two-year, $3 million contract with the Bolts.

For the Chargers, it fills the void left by Charlie Whitehurst, who on Thursday agreed to a two-year deal with the Tennessee Titans, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.

It's a shuffling of backups that reunites Whitehurst with new Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt, who coordinated the offense last season in San Diego. It likely also marks the end of Ryan Fitzpatrick in Tennessee, although Rapoport was told that Whiz is angling to build competition at the position.

Clemens signing with San Diego also leaves the Rams without Sam Bradford's No. 2 from last season. Unless the team has deep confidence in young Austin Davis, we see St. Louis -- with coordinator Brian Schottenheimer at the helm -- as a logical landing spot for Mark Sanchez if he's chopped free by the New York Jets.

The latest "Around The League Podcast" recaps the wild start of free agency.
