    This article makes it sound like he's already a lock to be on the team? Is he a UDFA from Europe or something? Why haven't I heard of him?

    I read a blurb on him the other day ... I'll go dig for it.

    But, basically it's a continuation of the NFLE policy of a few locals. We stick him on the roster for the preseason, and probably get an exemption on that extra spot (unsure of that though).

    Didn't the NFL grant practice squad exemptions one season for one Euro national ??? Seems like it.

    Bolts add Brisbane

    When the Chargers head to London in October to face the New Orleans Saints, they’ll have one player on their roster who will be able to show them around. London native Jason Brisbane will join the Bolts this spring as part of the NFL’s International Practice Squad Program.

    The initiative, which enters its fifth year in 2008, will for the first time feature 16 players joining the practice squads of NFL teams to enhance the development of elite football talent from around the world. The expansion of the program was approved by NFL clubs at the league’s spring meeting in May.

    The 16 players from seven different countries have earned positions on the practice squad rosters of teams in the AFC North, AFC West, NFC South and NFC West Divisions. More than 100 players competed at NFL International Player Development camps held in Europe and Asia in the past 12 months for the right to claim these coveted positions.
