Hester, Tribble agree to terms with Chargers

SAN DIEGO -- Rookies Jacob Hester and DeJuan Tribble agreed to contract terms with the San Diego Chargers on Friday.

That leaves cornerback Antoine Cason, the team's first-round draft pick, as the Chargers' only unsigned player.

Hester and Tribble both agreed to four-year contracts. Hester, a running back from LSU, was picked in the third round. Tribble, a cornerback from Boston College, was chosen in the sixth round.

Hester rushed for 1,103 yards and 12 touchdowns for LSU last season. The Chargers traded two draft picks, including a second-round choice in next year's draft, to New England to get the pick they used on Hester.

Tribble had 15 career interceptions, the third most in Boston College history.

Cason, selected 27th overall from Arizona, was one of five cornerbacks selected in the first round.

Chargers' rookies are scheduled to report to training camp Sunday night and practice for the first time on Monday morning. The team's first full-squad practices will be held next Friday.
