Chargers sign TE Johnson

The Los Angeles Chargers signed tight end Ben Johnson on Wednesday.

Johnson, 25, spent time in training camp with the Chargers last season as an undrafted rookie from Kansas.

The Chargers needed another tight end after losing Andrew Vollert, who sustained a torn ACL in last week's preseason opener against the Arizona Cardinals.

Johnson recorded 61 receptions for 670 yards and two touchdowns in 45 career games at Kansas, including 30 catches for 363 yards and a score in 2017.

The Chargers waived linebacker Josh Corcoran to free up the roster spot.
