Chargers re-signed FS Darrell Stuckey to a multi-year contract.

Stuckey was the Chargers' highest remaining priority after extending Donald Butler and will return as a special teams captain and reserve safety. He appeared in all 16 games last season, finishing with 21 tackles. Stuckey remains unlikely to push for significant defensive snaps in 2014.
Updating previous items, ILB Donald Butler's new "seven-year" deal is actually a three-year, $19.8 million contract.

The on-paper value is $51.8 million over seven seasons, but the Bolts have a $12 million club option available after three years. Butler's signing bonus is $11.15 million. Before the option, Butler's deal is a three-year commitment worth $6.6 million annually. It's still a more team-friendly contract than the Dolphins gave Dannell Ellerbe in 2013. Ellerbe makes $6.95 million a year.
Chargers WR Eddie Royal has restructured his contract.

Royal was previously scheduled to earn a $4.5 million base salary and count $6 million against the cap in the final year of his deal. It's likely he took a straight pay cut and will be given the opportunity to earn the difference back in incentives. Royal is coming off a solid year that saw him reel in eight touchdowns, but he's ideally nothing more than a No. 3 or 4 receiver who can help as a return man.
