The Chargers added some needed depth at linebacker Tuesday by reportedly agreeing to a one-year deal with Nick Vigil.

A third-round draft pick in 2016, Vigil spent the past four seasons with Cincinnati. He started all 16 games for the Bengals last season, finishing with 111 combined tackles and one interception.

Vigil, 26, started 37 of the 54 games in which he appeared for Cincinnati. He played in college at Utah State.

The Chargers released veteran starting linebacker Thomas Davis this month and also lost Jatavis Brown to Philadelphia through free agency. Davis eventually signed with Washington.
