Safety McCree agrees to deal with Chargers

SAN DIEGO (March 12, 2006) -- Free agent safety Marlon McCree agreed to a five-year deal with San Diego on March 11, an upgrade for the Chargers' light-hitting secondary.

McCree, who had been with the Carolina Panthers, was the first player to visit the Chargers after free agency opened March 11.

General manager A.J. Smith said the coaching staff will decide whether McCree will play free or strong safety.

"He's a terrific football player, very versatile," Smith said. "He's tough and competitive."

McCree had 88 tackles and three interceptions for Carolina last year. He spent the 2003-04 seasons with the Houston Texans after beginning his career in Jacksonville.
