Chargers released LG Chad Rinehart.
The move clears a roster spot for Orlando Franklin's arrival, and saves $3.25 million. Rinehart was a 16-game starter last season, but also one of the worst guards in the league. Two months shy of his 30th birthday, he'll hunt for reserve work in free agency. Mar 10 - 6:21 PM

Chargers re-signed LG Chad Rinehart to a two-year, $6 million contract.

The deal includes $2 million guaranteed. Rinehart made 10 starts at both guard spots last season and played every snap in each of the Chargers' two playoff games. He was our No. 3 free agent guard, behind only Geoff Schwartz and Travelle Wharton. Bringing back Rinehart finally gives the Chargers' line some continuity with C Nick Hardwick putting off retirement and RT D.J. Fluker showing signs of difference-making ability. Rinehart was ProFootballFocus' No. 42 guard among 81 qualifiers last season.

Chargers LG Chad Rinehart (foot) has been ruled out for Week 4 versus Dallas.

Rinehart played just 16 snaps last week before leaving with the foot injury. Per the Union-Tribune San Diego, Rinehart is out for "at least" this week. Veteran Rich Ohrnberger will start in his place.

Chad Rinehart is expected to be the Chargers' starting left guard this season.

A former third-round flameout in Washington, Rinehart is now on his third NFL team. From left to right, San Diego's O-Line is expected to read LT Max Starks, LG Rinehart, C Nick Hardwick, RG Jeromey Clary, and RT D.J. Fluker. The rag-tag unit is the primary reason it's hard to love Chargers in fantasy this year.

Chargers agreed to terms with OG Chad Rinehart, formerly of the Bills, on a one-year contract.

The deal is pending a physical. It's easy to connect the dots here. Rinehart, 28 in May, played under new Chargers' OL coach Joe D’Alessandris in Buffalo for the last three seasons. Rinehart is a fine backup with starting experience. He started 17 games in his three years in Buffalo.
Wed, Mar 13, 2013 01:26:00 PM

Bills coach Chan Gailey expects RG Chad Rinehart (ankle) to end up on injured reserve.

The walking-wounded Bills need roster spots, and with Kraig Urbik (ankle) finally due back in Week 9, Rinehart is a logical candidate for the shelf. Rinehart graded out positively as both a run and pass blocker in Pro Football Focus' ratings, but Urbik's return should give the Bills a boost, particularly in the run game.
Mon, Oct 29, 2012 04:07:00 PM

Bills RG Chad Rinehart (ankle) is out indefinitely.

"It’s not good, but it’s going to be long term," coach Chan Gailey said Monday. "I don’t know if it’s season (ending), but it’s long term." Rinehart was filling in for Kraig Urbik (ankle), who's expected back following the Bills' Week 8 bye.
Mon, Oct 22, 2012 11:28:00 AM

Bills RG Chad Rinehart left Sunday's game against the Titans in the third quarter with a leg injury.

Rinehart was filling in for normal starting right guard, Kraig Urbik (ankle). Sam Young has come on as Rinehart was carted off.
Sun, Oct 21, 2012 03:00:00 PM

Bills re-signed restricted free agent RG Chad Rinehart to a one-year, $1.26 million contract.

The 27-year-old Rinehart started 12 games last season, shuffling between left and right guard. Pro Football Focus gave him strong pass-blocking grades, and considered him fairly effective as a run blocker. Rinehart did outplay Kraig Urbik, and should return as the starting right guard with Eric Wood at center and Andy Levitre at left guard. Urbik figures to be the top reserve.
Mon, Apr 23, 2012 03:45:00 PM

Bills placed original-round tenders on restricted free agent guards Chad Rinehart and Kraig Urbik.

The Bills can now match any offer Rinehart or Urbik receive on the open market, and will receive draft-pick compensation if they choose not to do so. Urbik made 13 starts at right guard in 2011, while Rinehart appeared in all 16 games in a swing role, making 12 starts.
Mon, Mar 12, 2012 10:23:00 AM

The Bills may attempt to work out long-term agreements with restricted free agent guards Chad Rinehart and Kraig Urbik.

Both are expected to be tendered qualifying offers, but it would make sense for the Bills to lock them up heading into their age-27 seasons. Urbik was Buffalo's starting right guard in 2011, while Rinehart served in a swing role. Both graded out as top-20 guards by Pro Football Focus.
Mon, Jan 30, 2012 11:33:00 AM

Chad Rinehart replaced LG Andy Levitre in the starting lineup in Tuesday's practice.

The change isn't likely to last, but it's a reminder that the Bills offensive line is a mess. Levitre and RG Kraig Urbik are well below average, as are the Bills starting tackles. While coach Chan Gailey is one of the brightest offensive minds in the game, the shaky O-Line leaves Buffalo's fantasy players as low-upside draft picks.
Tue, Aug 16, 2011 07:06:00 PM

Bills RG Chad Rinehart will start for the team in Week 15.

A bust in Washington D.C., Rinehart spent a majority of the season on Buffalo's practice squad. He's being forced into action with starting RG Eric Wood filling in at center for the injured Geoff Hangartner. His insertion into the starting lineup doesn't bode well for Fred Jackson, who comes in as our No. 18 ranked running back play.
Sun, Dec 19, 2010 09:58:00 AM

Bills OG Chad Rinehart has earned the starting job at right guard.

Rinehart split time with Cordaro Howard in Week 14 but outplayed him. "Chad played a lot better than I anticipated he would," Gailey said. "We'll go through the rest of the week, but the way he played, he certainly deserves to start this week and we'll see how we handle the rotation and how we work that."
Tue, Dec 14, 2010 09:02:00 AM

Bills signed OG Chad Rinehart from their practice squad.

A third-round pick in 2008, Rinehart was a major disappointment for the Redskins the past two seasons. He'll add depth to a retooled offensive line that has been hit hard by injuries over the past couple of weeks. Fred Jackson better hope Rinehart doesn't see the field.
