Chargers signed DT Mitch Unrein to a two-year contract.

Unrein gives the Chargers veteran depth. He can play both defensive line and fullback in a pinch. Unrein will be counted on for a bigger role with San Diego after being limited to eight games last season. Unrein should get the majority of his snaps as an end in DC John Pagano's 3-4 scheme.

Free agent DT Mitch Unrein visited with the Chargers on Wednesday.

Unrein was limited to eight games (46 snaps) as a rotational lineman last season. He has ties to Chargers HC Mike McCoy, and could provide depth at defensive end in San Diego's 3-4 scheme. A career backup, Unrein should be available for the veteran minimum.

The Broncos would like to re-sign DT Mitch Unrein.

Unrein appeared in eight games last season, playing 46 snaps. He appeared in all 16 games from 2011-13. The Broncos need reserve heft with Terrance Knighton walking in free agency.

Broncos signed restricted free agent DT Mitch Unrein to a one-year, $1.431 million contract.

They also re-upped exclusive rights free agents CB Tony Carter, SS Duke Ihenacho, and LB Brandon Marshall to minimum salary deals. Unrein, 27, tallied 20 tackles as a reserve defensive tackle last season, and also has value as a short-yardage fullback. He's a versatile role player.

Broncos extended an original pick tender to restricted free agent DT Mitch Unrein.

It's the lowest possible RFA tender, and values at $1.431 million. It's a good contract offer for Unrein, a special teamer and reserve who can double at fullback and defensive tackle. He should sign on the dotted line quickly.

Broncos re-signed exclusive rights free agent DT Mitch Unrein to a one-year, $555,000 contract.

Unrein, 26, appeared in all 16 games last season, starting twice. He recorded 20 tackles as a top reserve, and he'll fill the same role in 2013. Ideally, the Broncos will add more depth behind starters Kevin Vickerson and Terrance Knighton.

Texans waived DT Mitch Unrein, C/G Chris White, WR Bobby Williams, and S Torri Williams.

The Texans' final roster is just about set. White started eight games last year, but Houston is going young on the line (and at most positions). Both of the Williamses were undrafted free agents, as well as Unrein.
