    Not if they pass through waivers...... that last cutdown was a big one. Teams can only bring back 8 of those guys for the practice squad, and they have to be eligible (no vets).

    Only if you sign them from the other teams practice squad. If you get them on waiver, all is fair...

    Tolzien got picked up by the 49ers. I guess they liked the way he was kicking their ***.

    He is probably closer to a starter there than one might think. I am not sure Cptn. Comeback is sold on his guys.

    Needless to say, most Niners fans are quite pleased about the acquisition of Scott Tolzien, especially considering the fact that he currently seems a lot more “NFL ready” than their 2011 2nd round draft pick, QB Colin Kaepernick: http://forums.49ers.com/messageboard/showthread.php?t=118762

    Chargers reach practice squad limit
    By Christopher Smith, Chargers.com

    SAN DIEGO – The Chargers reached the eight-man practice squad maximum Monday.
    San Diego signed tackle Eric Young and quarterback Drew Willy.

    Young spent a portion of last season on the Bolts’ practice squad and spent training camp in San Diego. Willy, who spent training camp with the New York Jets, has spent time with the Baltimore Ravens, Indianapolis Colts and Las Vegas Locomotives (UFL).

    Other members of the practice squad, signed Sunday, are linebacker Bront Bird[​IMG], defensive tackle Charlie Bryant[​IMG], tackle Steve Schilling, cornerback Traye Simmons[​IMG], fullback Frank Summers[​IMG] and tight end Brad Taylor[​IMG].

    Free Willy!

    Seriously, get rid of this scrub!

    He's probably just a placeholder until we find a more suitable QB to develop.

    Drew effin Willy and how many O linemen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Jeez what a disaster. Young has not got it period. A waste of a spot, what about all the talk of Broadway or Odim!!?. Bryant is intriguing. He certainly looked like he had some strength but wasn't very 'cat like' ala Liuget for example. Hoping he can do a Dielman. But if he is being projected as a Tackle why have Young there too. With Schilling!. We should have a D back or D lineman there instead.

    What would be a disaster would be Rivers and Volek going down and not having a QB anywhere on the roster, to include the PS.
