The Los Angeles Chargers bolstered their offensive line this Tuesday, signing Will Clapp to a contract.

Clapp, a former seventh-round pick out of LSU, began his pro career with the New Orleans Saints. He signed his rookie contract with the team and made his NFL debut in December of 2018.

The Saints waived Clapp in September of 2020 before signing him back to their practice squad. He then re-signed with the team during the 2021 offseason.

Clapp appeared in nine games and started in three of them for the Saints this past season.

It's unclear what the Chargers' vision is for Clapp at this time, but he does have experience at offensive guard and center.

Perhaps the Chargers will utilize Clapp as one of their primary backups during the 2022 season.

The Chargers' current starters at offensive guard are Matt Feiler and Brenden Jaimes. That position group could use some reinforcements, that's for sure.
