Bio

The Chargers retained a key contributor on the offensive line when they re-signed Ohrnberger to a one-year deal in April.

Ohrnberger originally signed with the Chargers in 2013 as an unrestricted free agent from Arizona. He played in 15 games in 2013, including playoffs, and started at right guard in the Chargers’ 30-21 win over Dallas on Sept. 29. He proved to be a key reserve, seeing time at right guard, left guard and center during the season. Ohrnberger played perhaps his most critical role during the Chargers’ Jan. 5 Wild Card playoff win at Cincinnati when he replaced an injured Nick Hardwick at center early in the contest. The offense didn’t skip a beat with Ohrnberger in the lineup as the Bolts rushed for 196 yards and allowed just one sack in a 27-10 win to advance to the Divisional round.

Ohrnberger originally came into the NFL as a fourth-round draft pick by the New England Patriots in 2009. He spent the 2009-11 seasons with the Patriots before signing with Arizona in 2012. Including last season in San Diego, he’s played in 31 career games and made five starts.

Ohrnberger has a reputation for being a wise guy. He has become a cult figure on twitter with his off-color tweets and is followed by more than 25,000 fans on the social media site with his handle, @ohrnberger. While at Penn State, Ohrnberger once impersonated a teammate during a media conference call and he performed a live stand-up comedy routine at the Hollywood Improv during team activities leading up to the Nittany Lions appearance in the 2009 Rose Bowl.
