    So far those are great additions to the PS and guys I'm sure the team really wanted to hang onto.

    The Chiefs claimed TE Parker which is unfortunate, he had some raw ability. Pretty good squad so far, most of these guys were a hair away from making the roster.

    A TE, ex Ram is on his way. Alex Bayer is his name. Know nada about him apart from the fact that he recovered Keenan Allen's muffed punt.

    Bolts Add 3 To Round Out Practice Squad

    From The Chargers.com Website

    The San Diego Chargers filled the remaining three spots on the practice squad with one familiar face and two new additions.

    After spending 2013 on the active roster and the end of 2014 on the practice squad, QB Brad Sorensen was added on Monday after being waived on Saturday. The former seventh round pick was 38-of-69 for 336 yards and one touchdown this preseason.

    Joining Sorensen is former St. Louis Rams tight end Alex Bayer. A 6-4, 258-pound product out of Bowling Green, Bayer appeared in six games in 2014 contributing mainly on special teams. He recovered a fumble last season against the Chargers, and had three catches this preseason for 18 yards.


    Finally, the Bolts added versatile guard Michael Ola, who started 12 games last season for the Chicago Bears at every position except center. The 6-4, 312-pounder spent two seasons in the CFL with the Montreal Alouettes before joining the Bears in 2014.

    If this Ola guy is the player I'm thinking of... I used wonder how the hell he was playing on an offensive line in the NFL. He was that bad.

    (but he might not be the player I'm remembering.... I hope not)

    To be honest, I thought I heard someone mention his name as a possibility to be a player that we could use. But again, I may be off on this. Don't know much about him at all... Yet.

    Pretty sure this is his last year eligible. Needs to show up though season and offseason, most likely drafting another young QB next year if not.
