Chargers add Runyan, place Clary on IR

The Chargers signed veteran free-agent OT Jon Runyan to a one-year contract Tuesday. Runyan replaces starting RT Jeromey Clary, who was placed on season-ending injured reserve with an ankle injury.

Financial terms of the deal with Runyan weren’t disclosed.

“We are very fortunate that a player of Jon’s experience and ability was available at this time,” Chargers general manager A.J. Smith said in a statement released by the team. “He is an outstanding competitor, and I have always admired the physical, nasty approach he brings to the field every game. He will be added to the mix and we will move forward.”

During his 13-year NFL career, Runyan has played in two Super Bowls (Super Bowl XXXIV with the Titans following the 1999 season and Super Bowl XXXIX with the Eagles following the 2004 season), five conference championship games and the 2002 Pro Bowl.
