TSN Insider Dave Naylor of the Globe and Mail is reporting that Canadian defensive end Vaughn Martin has signed a four-year deal with the San Diego Chargers.

While full financial details of the contract were not available, Martin received a signing bonus of just under US$500,000.

The 23-year old was chosen in the fourth round, 113th overall by the Chargers in April's NFL draft.

The University of Western product still has three-years of University eligibility remaining and is not eligible for the CFL Canadian college draft until 2011.

Martin, who was born in Jamaica, did not take up football until 10th grade.
