Chargers Sign WR Graham


Two days after acquiring quarterback Jim Harbaugh, the San Diego Chargers signed veteran receiver Jeff Graham to a one-year contract. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Graham was released by the Philadelphia Eagles last month for salary cap purposes. He was third on the team with 47 catches for 600 yards and two touchdowns last season.

The Chargers have yet to re-sign starting receivers Charlie Jones and Bryan Still, who are both restricted free agents. Jones led the team with 46 catches for 699 yards and Still had 43 receptions for 605 yards in 1998.

Graham, 30, will join his fifth NFL team. He has 378 catches for 5,486 yards and 19 touchdowns in 166 career games.

Last year was Graham's first with the Eagles, who acquired him from the New York Jets for a draft pick.

Originally a second-round pick of Pittsburgh in 1991, Graham played three years with the Steelers before signing as a free agent with Chicago in 1994. He played two years with the Bears before joining the Jets in 1996.

On Wednesday, the Chargers acquired Harbaugh from the Baltimore Ravens for a fifth-round pick in 2000.
