Andre Patton earns third year on practice squad

Andre Patton, wide receiver: Patton would be a player eligible for a third year on the practice squad after spending the first two years of his career there. Though he’s yet to show what he can do in a game that matters, he has flashed signs of being a contributor at some point. He has an outside shot at making the team, but the Chargers will have him as a safety valve on their practice squad should injuries occur.

Jeremy Cox, running back: Cox, an undrafted rookie out of Old Dominion, could easily make the 53-man roster as well. He is unlike any other back on the team and could really catch some people by surprise this summer.

Chris Brown, offensive lineman: The Chargers will keep as many of their offensive linemen as close to the team as possible this year. Brown is a perfect candidate for the practice squad and could easily earn a long-term role with the team eventually.

Tanner Volson, center: A center by trade, the Chargers will likely see if they can see some versatility in the college teammate of Easton Stick. So long as Volson shows some ability to at least line up at another position on the offensive line, he’s too talented to completely dismiss this summer.
