Mebane re-signed with the Chargers on Wednesday on a two-year contract, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The money involved in the deal isn't known, but it's likely that the 34-year-old veteran agreed to a pay cut after receiving a three-year, $13.5 million deal from the Chargers the last time he was a free agent. A valuable leader in the locker room, Mebane should remain a prominent part of the Chargers' defensive-line rotation.
Mebane's representation met with general manager Tom Telesco at the NFL Scouting Combine and discussed the possibility of him returning to the Chargers, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.
Mebane will enter unrestricted free agency at the start of the new year, but there's certainly a chance the 34-year-old could return to the Chargers after three productive seasons with the team. Darius Philon and Justin Jones are expected to compete for the starting nose tackle job regardless of whether Mebane returns, so it's likely the veteran defensive tackle will have to return for less than his previous three-year, $13 million contract.
Mebane (personal) will play during Sunday's AFC divisional-round game against the Patriots, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Mebane sat out last week's win over the Ravens following the tragic loss of his daughter but is expected to suit up versus the Patriots. Justin Jones will likely return to a backup role with Mebane active.

Mebane (personal) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice.
Mebane is trending toward retaking the field Saturday against the Ravens after having missed four straight games due to personal reasons. If the 32-year-old practices fully Wednesday and Thursday, he could resume his full workload immediately.
Mebane (personal) is confident he will playe in Saturday's game against the Ravens, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Mebane has missed the last four games due to complications following the birth of his daughter, though he can now return to the team since she has stabilized. It remains to be seen whether the 32-year-old resumes his full workload immediately, but he appears on track to play Saturday's game.
Mebane (personal) is listed as inactive for Thursday's game against the Chiefs, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports.
Mebane will miss a fourth consecutive game after failing to return to the team this week due to an ongoing personal matter, so Justin Jones should continue to see additional reps at defensive tackle next to Darius Philon and T.Y. McGill.
Mebane (personal) is listed as doubtful for Thursday's matchup with the Chiefs.
Mebane didn't practice all week and -- as of Tuesday -- remains away from the team. The California product has missed the last three games as he tends to a personal matter with his family. Justin Jones will likely retain his increased role against the Chiefs.
Mebane (personal) did not practice Tuesday, Sam Fortier of The Athletic reports.
There is little information regarding Mebane's current absence from the field. Should he return to practice before Saturday, all signs would point toward an active status. As for now, it's more of a wait-and-see approach with the 12-year veteran.
Mebane (personal) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's practice report.
Mebane returned to the Chargers' facility last week after missing two games to be with his family. The veteran defensive tackle continues to work his way back to game form, but he may not have enough time to get cleared before Thursday's showdown with the Chiefs. Look for his status in Tuesday's practice to be a major indicator as to whether he returns this week.
Mebane (personal) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Mebane left the team Friday to address the personal matter and was deemed doubtful heading into the weekend, so his absence was fully expected. The defensive tackle has played in 10 of the Chargers' 12 games to date, registering 32 tackles and a sack.
Mebane (personal) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.
Mebane rejoined the Chargers on Wednesday after having missed two straight games due to a family matter, but his Week 14 status nonetheless remains uncertain. The 33-year-old's doubtful status may indicate that he'll need to log a few more practices before retaking his starting role. If Mebane is unable to suit up against the Bengals on Sunday, expect Justin Jones to benefit from increased defensive snaps.
Mebane (personal) has rejoined the team and was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.
Mebane missed the previous two games as he tended to a family matter, but should be ready to go for Week 14. The 33-year-old's limited practice participation wasn't injury related, so he should be set to resume his starting duties at defensive tackle against the Bengals on Sunday.
Coach Anthony Lynn said that Mebane (personal) will not play against the Steelers on Sunday, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.
Mebane will miss his second consecutive game as he deals with a family matter. As long as the 12th-year veteran remains away from the field, expect Justin Jones to start at left defensive tackle.

Mebane (undisclosed) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Mebane was able to fully practice to begin the week, but he did not practice Thursday for reasons unrelated to injury. The cause for the defensive tackle's uncertain availability remains undisclosed, but it's good news that Mebane doesn't appear to have suffered a notable injury. If the 12th-year veteran is unable to play against the Cardinals on Sunday, Justin Jones will slot into the starting lineup.
Mebane accumulated six solo tackles and a sack in the 35-23 loss to the Rams on Sunday.
Mebane set a career high in tackles Sunday, quite a surprising feat given the Rams seemed hell-bent on spreading the Chargers out on the ground. The 12th-year veteran isn't consistent enough to be a viable IDP option, but he's been a stable presence on the defensive line since joining the Chargers in 2016.
Mebane has fully recovered from the biceps tear he suffered last season, the Orange County Register reports.
Mebane was a welcomed addition to the defensive line during his first season with the Chargers in 2016, producing 21 tackles, a sack and an interception across 10 games. While he unfortunately suffered a torn biceps in Week 10 that forced him to finish the season on injured reserve, his return to full health should allow him to participate in the majority of the team's offseason program.
Mebane (biceps) expects to be ready for the start of offseason workouts in April, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.
Mebane went down in Week 10 with a torn biceps, an affliction that typically accompanies a three-month recovery timetable. Considering he'll be roughly four months removed from the injury when offseason workouts start up in April, Mebane's optimism for his impending availability is certainly warranted.
Mebane (bicep) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Ricky Henne of Chargers.com reports.
Mebane suffered a torn bicep in Week 10's loss to the Dolphins. It was expected all along that the defensive tackle's season was over, but the team waited until returning from the bye week to officially make the move. At 31, the veteran proved he still has something left in the tank as he registered 21 tackles, one sack and one interception in 10 games. Damion Square is expected to take over as starter for the remainder of the season.
