Chargers sign Nick Novak

The San Diego Chargers went the veteran route in finding a new kicker to replace Nate Kaeding, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Kaeding tore his ACL and was lost for the season in the Chargers' opening victory over the Minnesota Vikings. He suffered the injury on the opening kickoff which Minnesota's Percy Harvin ran back for a touchdown.

Novak was in camp with the Chargers in 2010, but has not kicked in a regular season since 2008 whe he was with the Kansas City Chiefs. Novak has also spent time with Washington and Arizona.
