Russell Okung is staying in the AFC West.
Two weeks after the Broncos declined Okung's 2017 option, the veteran left tackle signed with the Chargers on a four-year contract, the team confirmed Friday. Okung's deal is worth $53 million with $13.25 million in guarantees, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via a source informed of the deal.
Okung took advantage of a weak tackle market to revive his value after a disappointing one-year Broncos stint that featured too many penalties and QB pressures. The 2010 first-round pick has started 88 of a possible 112 games in Seattle and Denver over seven NFL seasons.
