The Chargers have reached one year agreements with free agents Jackie Battle (RB) and Aubrayo Franklin (DT).

Jackie Battle spent his 2011 season with division rival Kansas City Chiefs. after recording 597 yards with two touchdowns in 149 carries in a breakout season for Battle. Due to injuries, the undrafted free agent was asked to contribute and so he did. Battle is a 6-2 238 lbs back that will be a big presence on third down and special teams. He will also add depth to the run game should they have injury problems further into the season. 

Aubrayo Franklin comes off somewhat of an off year with the New Orleans Saints, starting 9 games and recording just 17 tackles. Franklin will look to find a new beginning in San Diego. With so much talent on the Chargers line already, Franklin won't be looked at to do too much and make more specialized contributions. Franklin is entering his 11th year with the Chargers, he is a whoping 6-1 317 lbs. He has recorded 204 career tackles and has not missed a game since 2007. 

Franklin and Battle will look to make a good impression in training camp and will have a lot of new information to dissect.
