Chargers sign WR Reed to 1-year deal

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego Chargers have signed free agent wide receiver Josh Reed to a one-year contract.

Signing Reed apparently is a pre-emptive move. Pro Bowl wide receiver Vincent Jackson is one of three Chargers players who are so unhappy about being tendered one-year contracts as restricted free agents that they have stayed away from off-season workouts, including mini-camp.

Their holdouts could extend into the regular season.

The Bills allowed Reed to leave as a free agent after the 2009 season, when he had 27 catches for 291 yards and one touchdown.

On Wednesday, the Chargers signed three-time Pro Bowl left tackle Tra Thomas as insurance in case left tackle Marcus McNeill continues his holdout.
