In an effort to solidify their pass rush, the Chargers have reached an agreement with free agent OLB Travis LaBoy. The team announced the contract, which runs for two years, on Friday afternoon.

LaBoy played last season with the 49ers as a situational pass rusher. Despite not starting a game, he finished with five sacks. The Chargers will be LaBoy's fourth different team in four years, as he has also played with the Cardinals and Titans before the Niners.

Greg Manusky, the Chargers defensive coordinator, held the same role with San Francisco last season. It was LaBoy's familiarity with the coach and his scheme that convinced him to sign with the team, just as ILB Takeo Spikes did earlier in the week.

Way we see it

LaBoy will have the same role in Manusky's defense this season as he did last year, coming in on third downs to rush the passer. The Chargers defense struggled to get pressure last season outside of Shaun Phillips, so finding more rushers was an offseason priority for GM A.J. Smith.
