Chargers sign Max Tuerk

Listen to this article

On Thursday the San Diego Chargers announced they had signed center Max Tuerk (pronounced Turk) to a four-year contract. He was the team’s third round pick, # 66 overall.

Turk went to the University of Southern California and started for the Trojans for three season. He is a versatile player who started at all the offensive line positions, which will make him a valuable asset for the Chargers. Last season they were saddled with injuries to the line. A player of Tuerk’s talent and versatility can help the team when they need to plug a whole in the offensive line. He is 6’5” and weighs 298 lbs.

He is the seventh Chargers pick of the 2016 draft to be signed, leaving just one draftee unsigned: their first pick Joey Bosa.
