    Hmmmm .... I know we're extremely thin at LB but I was not impressed with Bird.

    Walters was no great shakes anyway but Bird = lucky to be anywhere near the NFL.

    Chargers sign LB Bront Bird from practice squad and release WR Bryan Walters. Bird will help on special teams and backup LB.

    We couldn't have Walters return kicks? Forget Todman we need a KR.

    Why is Goodman on the roster then? Because he plays STs as well?

    I actually think he has potential... if anything he can be too quick at times. I reckon he might get a chance at WR too what with how brittle our guys are.

    Good move. Bird is the word....wasn't impressed initially in preseason, so I'm going to assume he's been kicking some arse during practice...

    I saw him in practice, about the same as the other rookies, but in a couple of those preseason games, he was all over the place, making plays and tackles. If anyone was going to be a gem in the rough, it would be Bird.
