    Bolts Re-sign Three from Practice Squad

    The Chargers have tabbed three practice-squad players for reserve/future free agent contracts: DB Tra Battle (Georgia), DE Keith Grennan (Eastern Washington), T Tony Pape (Michigan).

    Battle was impressive in training camp last season and could push for a roster spot in 2008. The Chargers kept only three safeties on the roster last season and one of them, Marlon McCree, was a massive disappointment.

    Grennan is a hard-working, blue-collar player who faces an uphill battle, as the Chargers are likely to draft a player at his position.

    Pape is a journeyman who has bounced around between practice squads and NFL Europa rosters. He has never made an active roster, and next year will be no exception.

    Interesting about Battle
    Wonder if he's good enough at SS to push for a starting job

    how about Pape

    BIO: Three-year starter awarded all-conference honors the prior three seasons. Saw extensive action at both right and left tackle in college.

    POSITIVES: Big, powerful mauler best in confined quarters. Patient, stays square and uses all his assets to the fullest. Blocks with a nasty attitude, easily controls opponents at the point of attack and works to finish them off. Jolts defenders with hand punch and drives opponents from the line run blocking. Disciplined and quick in his head.

    NEGATIVES: Stiff, lacks adjustment and not comfortable in a wide area.

    ANALYSIS: Pape has been a productive blocker on the college level and offers solid skills for the next level. Though an average athlete with only ordinary upside, can contribute for an NFL team if placed in the proper system.

    PROJECTION: Early Fourth Round

    PostAnteaterCharger, I am calling you out! After lurking here for some time, your outrage has, at last, forced me to register.

    You sir, have stolen my avatar. I feel violated. In fact, I would at this very moment be consulting my attorneys, were it not for the fact that I myself stole the original images from others. But the PhotoShopping of the Anteater and the Bolt together was all mine!

    I am The BoltEater! I demand satisfaction!

    Yeah, I don't actually care that much. I was just rather surprised to see it in the first place.

    Honestly, I'm always happy to see more love for the Eaters. UCI needs all the pub it can get.

    Welcome to the Zoo BoltEater. We now have 2 Anteaters. :icon_toast: :tup:

    Now to stay on topic. I hope that the ones we signed back to that active roster are going to challenge our starters and backups to step up their game when Mini-Camp & TC comes around again.

    :icon_rofl:

    This is no joke.

    ANT is incapable of spelling the word "THE" and always does "teh" thing.

    I did not ever think I would live long enough to see another Anteater Charger in my life.

    This is huge. :yes:

    Welcome

    PS.....just because you and ANT went to the same school, I hope you do not develop any weird manlove type stuff for him. I am homophobic. :lol:

    You'd think there would be more of us - after all, Irvine does have some 25,000 students and is all of about 80 miles from Qualcomm - but I don't know any others either.

    I used to see alot of Raiders/49er jersies all over the place. the 49er jersies made sense because alot of UCI students come from northern california, the Raiders idk how many were real fan but they loved to give me crap for wearing charger gear (this was 2001-2005). Bet there are more now, bunch of turncoat raider fans

    Halo 3

    Gamer Tag: YO COLON RIPPER

    Just PM me your Gamer Tag first here because I get friend requests that I do not accept (I want a short list of friends to start).

    This applies to anyone reading this and/or playing Halo 3.

    Anyway, I am surprised Race or Gross (RB's) were not signed?

    Is this a prelude to drafting a RB or two?

    I wonder.

    edit: oppps knights50 is your gamertag ... add me to your list as "Yo Colon Ripper"

    Maybe if it had fangs and flashed a gang sign or two ? :lol:
