Third-Round Pick Wilson Signs Charger Contract

The Chargers announced Wednesday they have signed wide receiver Walter Wilson, a third-round draft choice from East Carolina, and agreed to terms with two lower-round picks.

Wilson’s contract was for three years, according to his agent, Alan Herman of New York. No financial details were released.

Wilson, 5-feet-10 and 181 pounds, was the third of three Charger picks in the third round and the 67th player taken overall. He caught 91 passes for 1,670 yards and 16 touchdowns in four seasons.

Also agreeing to terms were running back J.J. Flannigan, an eighth-round choice from Colorado, and offensive guard Chris Goetz, a ninth-round selection from Pittsburgh, General Manager Bobby Beathard said. No terms were released.


Flannigan, 5-10 1/2 and 194, gained 1,187 yards on 164 carries as a senior.

Goetz, 6-2 and 272, played guard and tackle at Pitt. He was named the outstanding offensive lineman at the Senior Bowl.

The announcements leave the Chargers with 11 of their 17 draft choices without contract agreements. Rookies and selected veterans are scheduled to report July 20 to UC San Diego for the start of training camp.
