Chargers sign FB from K.C. to replace Hester. Chargers sign big back http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2012/mar/14/chargers-sign-big-back/ "One of the Chargers' goals this offseason was to fortify their backfield, which meant finding a true fullback as well as a veteran backup running back. Wednesday's acquisition of Le'Ron McClain, who agreed to terms on a three-year contract, fills the former of those needs. At 6-foot, 260 pounds, McClain is more of a fullback and will fill that role in San Diego as the Chargers move on from Jacob Hester. The Chargers would like to re-sign Hester but primarily as a special teamer. McClain spent his first four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, who drafted him in the fourth round of the 2007 draft. He signed with the Kansas City Chiefs prior to last season and started 10 games for them. McClain can run and catch." ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ And Jacob can't!??? And, yes, Jacob is not a "true" fullback because, by nature, he's not a fullback. He's a runningback! I can only imagine the frustration Hester must feel. He's fast, strong, has good hands, excellent vision, and, when given the chance, productive. Yet, due to his lack of melanin, he's more of an afterthought in San Diego than anything else. A damn shame.
