Do a Google News search for Eddie Royal, and it will turn up at least three items claiming Royal has signed with the Washington Redskins.

He hasn’t.

Royal, still an unrestricted free agent, is currently being pursued by the Chargers. Kevin Acee of the Union-Tribune San Diego is “told” the club feels good about its chances of signing him.

Royal would be the Chargers’ No. 4 receiver, behind Robert Meachem, Malcom Floyd, and impressive 2011 third-round pick Vincent Brown. Royal would likely also assume punt return duties in San Diego.
