The San Diego Chargers have signed DE/LB Thomas Keiser off of the practice squad. Keiser will help give depth on the roster after Dwight Freeney went down with a torn quad.

Just got activated! Time to go wreak havoc!!!!!

We have to see what the Chargers will be doing to make room for these players. The Chargers signed WR Lavelle Hawkins today and signed Keiser off of the practice squad. Nick Becton could be a person that the Chargers release in order to make room on the roster, but the next move could be with Malcom Floyd or Dwight Freeney.

I would assume that Freeney would be placed on the IR with the designation to return, hoping that he will be able to come back later in the year. We still are unaware of the timetable it is going to take for Malcom Floyd to return.

Keiser is going to step in for Dwight Freeney out. He will be joining Larry English and Tourek Williams as depth at outside linebacker. Jarret Johnson is the starter on the other outside linebacker position.

Hopefully these guys can make some good things happen on the field.
