San Diego Inks 1st Round Pick LB Melvin Ingram

The Chargers have announced that they have agreed to terms with first round pick Melvin Ingram, second round defensive end Kendall Reyes and have signed seventh round center David Molk.

Reyes’ agreeing to terms was initially reported earlier this afternoon by Adam Caplan of The Sideline View.

The 6-foot-2, 264-pound Ingram posted 21.5 sacks during his 52-game career, with 10 of those sacks came during the 2011 season. Ingram played defensive end at South Carolina, but is expected to play outside linebacker for the Chargers.

Financial details of Ingram’s four-year deal were not released, but as the No. 18 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, Ingram is expected to receive a fully guaranteed four-year contract worth around $8.4 million.

Molk was a four-year starter at Michigan, but his lack of size (6-foot-1, 298 pounds) hurt his draft stock. Molk posted 41 reps on the bench press and will try to crack the 53-man roster as a backup center/guard during training camp.
