Chargers Sign WR Danario Alexander


According to WR Danario Alexander, he is signing with the San Diego Chargers:

All problems are gone now!

He was on the Rams from 2010-2012 and went to college in Missouri. He has the height that we love to have at receiver, standing at 6-foot-5.

As a senior at Missouri, he had an NCAA best 1781 yards and 14 touchdowns, averaging 15.8 yards per reception and 137 yards per game.

Here is some notes from Pro Football Talk:

Though blessed with freakish tools, injuries have been an insurmountable obstacle in Alexander’s three-year NFL career. A balky left knee torpedoed his stock before the 2010 NFL draft, and he couldn’t stay on the field in parts of two seasons with St. Louis.

Still only 24 and apparently healthy now, Alexander could be a worthwhile flier signing for a team with enough 53-man roster space to carry him for a bit, while Alexander learns the offense. He does not have practice squad eligibility, however.

Now we have to see who gets cut off the 53-man roster. Maybe we have seen the last of Antonio Garay. This could also mean that Vincent Brown is not recovering as quickly as the team would like.

Here are some highlights from college:

    Welcome aboard, if you are willing to fight for the ball, then you are a much needed piece to this puzzle.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      aint that the truth. watching eddie royal and robert meachem escort defenders to the interception is unreal!

      • arnie

        another player for the trainers an doctors?
        drop “Dombrowski”

    • Pels04

      I was thinking the same thing. Him fighting for the ball and being 6′-5″ could really be helpful since our OL is crap. Rivers can continue to throw off his back foot and straight up in the air haha and is sounds like Alexander will go up and get it unlike Meachem.

    Well PR has a jump ball target. Now is there a tackle stocking groceries somewhere?

  • LJ

    Thats what we missed in jackson a big target who is phgysical. now hopefully gaither heals in the bye switch harris to rt hopefully that fixes our ol problems.

  • bolthead612

    I hope he helps with his height and can get jump balls but it makes me a lil worried about vbrowns rehab! BOLT UP!!!

  • flutiefan

    get rid of Garay? say it ain’t so! the NYC Big Apple Bolt Backers love him <3

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      Thought about it more.. Probably Novak with Kaeding ready

  • arnie

    how’s paying’ $50 mil for one WR lookin’ now?

    SMH…more damaged goods.

    Sorry I don’t think he can fix the problem with the behemouth drag queen #66 getting owned every other play……

    • JoseSD

      Behemoth drag queen :-) thats hilarious, I dont get how a man his size gets pushed around by everyone he faces

  • JoseSD

    Goodby dombrowski or maybe Ladarius Green to practice squad

  • 619chargers4life

    another injury prone player. awesome!!!!

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      That is the only type we like. Haven’t had enough injuries this year. Haha

      • 619chargers4life

        i know right. i just hope he proves me wrong, and i hope our O-line can as well.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/James-P-Derrick/1654577989 James P Derrick

    Ladarius Green is 6′ 6″…so why not throw him in there? Rosario not being used too much either since he shined last….it’s always something w/ Norv. Now Chargers’ PR guy is telling us to take a chill pill. Wow….

  • Leonardo Velazquez

    Good news Bolt Beat! Did you know that you are on Wikipedia’s radar? They referenced you on Danario Alexander’s signing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danario_Alexander
    If you click the part where it says “signed with the” under the San Diego Chargers heading, it will take you to this article.

  • AJ Smith

    Remember Mikhael Ricks? 6’5″ 260. Last year in college he
    had 47 catches for 1348 yards and 14 touchdowns. Averaging 35.9 yards a catch but had problems with leg injuries. San Diego drafted him in round 2 in 1998 and he became a bust. Do you see the similarities?

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      You even spelled his name right! The part that is good about Alexander, he doesn’t have the expectations of a 2nd round pick. He is just a guy brought in to try and help. Not expected to be anything huge

      • arnie

        well that would be part of the problem with the chargers ernie. if they need to bring somebody in help, then the expectations should be “HUGE”. see the other problem is, PR doesn’t have enough time to throw to the WR they have. so i’m with 1961 Fan on this one. they could either bring up Washington, or bring back spurlock, to help.
        they need help on the OL.
        broken record time…
        $25 mil for Meachum, $25 mil for Gaither, $13.5 for Royal. now they’ve signed a injury prove WR to replace who, craig “buster” davis? what a waste. great job AJ.

  • Ignatius

    Meh, I’m not rushing to buy an Danario Alexander jersey.

  • 1961 Fan

    Dear A. J.
    it is the O line we need help with – you idiot!

    i hope this guy stays healthy and proves to be a weapon, I’m not sure if I can handle another underachieving player on our team. I also hope he does not overachieve, because if he does then AJ will refuse to pay him what he’s worth and he’ll leave…smh
