The San Diego Chargers signed P Mat McBriar onto the roster to fill the spot for Mike Scifres. McBriar will take over the responsibilities as the punter on the roster and Nick Novak can go back to kicking his field goals (if we can score points).
McBriar is an Australian born player and started out playing Australian rules football. I guess we love that Australian style football in San Diego.
McBriar can also be used as the place kick holder on the squad. Mike Scifres had that responsibility with the team as well, so McBriar could fill that role for the team.
McBriar was selected in the Pro Bowl twice in his career while he was with the Dallas Cowboys. He gets a shot back in the NFL. We won’t be punting much anyway in the last 3 games of the year. We will only be scoring points from this point forward.
