The Chargers placed their longest tenured player on injured reserve today. Long snapper David Binn, who is the Chargers last link to the 1994 AFC Championship, was lost for the season, due to a severe tear of the hamstring. Binn, had played in 257 consecutive games, and considered one of the best long snappers in the game. Binn also dated Pamela Anderson in the last few years, not a bad job for a player most NFL fans have never heard of.
The Chargers signed long snapper James Dearth, who was with the Jets in the preseason. He is a nine year veteran.
It also appears that the Chargers home opener will be blacked out on local TV. The Chargers have about 8,000 unsold tickets. So it looks like you will have to find the game on a pirate Internet site.
