Tom Telesco is busy scouring the waiver wire after all the team’s cuts. We have already added a couple of players onto the roster after cut day.

The Chargers signed ILB Reggie Walker onto the roster. He is a special teams stud and has worked with special teams coach Kevin Spencer in Arizona. He should help upgrade the special teams for us. The team has released DJ Smith in order to make room for Walker.

The Chargers also traded a 2015 7th round draft pick to the Dallas Cowboys for a defensive lineman. They picked up Sean Lissemore to join in on the defensive front and place Damik Scafe on the injured reserve to make room for him on the roster.

Lissemore is listed at 6-foot-3, 315 pounds. The 2010 seventh-round pick has appeared in 28 games, including six starts in 2012, with 66 career tackles and 3.5 sacks. He has versatility, considered capable of playing all three line spots in a 3-4 scheme. – UT San Diego
