The Chargers have agreed to a one-year contract with free-agent wide receiver and kick returner Roscoe Parrish. Parrish, who joined the Chargers on Tuesday, spent his first seven seasons with the Bills (Parrish was drafted in the 2nd Round of 2005 from the University of Miami), averaging 12 yards on 135 returns, with three touchdowns. Parrish’s average since 2005 ranks second in the NFL behind Chicago’s Devin Hester (12.9). Parrish had 134 catches for 1,502 yards and seven touchdowns in his Bills career.
Parrish spent last season on the injured reserve list after sustaining an ankle injury in Week 2. Parrish will likely serve as the team’s kick returner this season, as long as he proves to be 100 percent.
