Barner may primarily be used on special teams, Jack Wang of The Orange County Register reports.

Melvin Gordon proved more than capable of filling a three-down role last season, and the Chargers also return Kenneth Farrow and Branden Oliver (Achilles) to their backfield. If everyone is healthy, Barner will probably be No. 4 in the pecking order, which could put him on the roster bubble. He's signed to a modest one-year contract and may need to contribute as a kick returner if he's going to stay around in San Diego.
