Posted Nov 15, 2014

Your complete rundown of all the transactions made by the San Diego Chargers.

December 30 - One day after signing eight players to a reserve/futures contract, the Chargers inked another who spent the vast majority of the season on the the practice squad in G Craig Watts.

December 29 - With the 2014 campaign officially over, the Bolts signed a number of players from their practice squad to reserve/futures contracts heading into 2015.  They include DT Chas Alecxih, WR Torrence Allen,  CB Richard Crawford, WR Javontee Herndon, TE David Paulson, S Adrian Phillips, T Bryce Quigley and LB Colton Underwood.  Crawford and Phillips both spent time on the team's active roster this season with Phillips appearing in three games.

December 27 - Mike Scifres was placed on IR on Saturday on the eve of the regular season finale with the shoulder injury suffered in Week 14.  The hope was the punter could return at some point, but the Bolts made the decision to promote center Jeff Baca for their regular season finale in Kansas City. 

December 22 - The Bolts lost another offensive lineman for the season as guard Johnnie Troutman was placed on IR with a knee injury suffered during the team's epic comeback over the 49ers.  The team replaced him by re-signing guard/tackle Kenny Wiggins.  The 6-6, 314-pound Wiggins spent most of 2013 on the team's active roster and remained in San Diego until he was waived on Aug. 30.

December 17 - After waiving him on December 11, the Chargers re-signed guard/tackle Bryce Quigley to the practice squad when guard Craig Watts was placed on the Reserve-Suspended listQuigley is a versatile former SDSU star who actually began his career with the Aztecs as a tight end.

December 15 - Inside linebacker Donald Butler dislocated his elbow in Sunday's loss to the Denver Broncos and had to be placed on the reserve-injured list, ending his season.  That move kicked off a trio of transactions that saw cornerback Greg Ducre promoted to the active roster and former Chargers quarterback Brad Sorensen re-signed to the practice squad.  Ducre began the year on the practice squad before being signed to the Washington Redskins' active roster.  The Bolts brought him back last week after the Redskins waived him.  Meanwhile, Sorensen spent all of last year on the active roster before being waived at the end of training camp this season.

December 11 - Cornerback Greg Ducre began the year on the Chargers’ practice squad before the Washington Redskins signed him to their active roster on October 8.  He appeared in five games for Washington, registering two tackles with an interception against the San Francisco 49ers, but was released by the Redskins earlier in the week.  Now, he’s back with the Bolts as the team re-signed him to the practice squad.  To make room, San Diego waived offensive lineman Bryce Quigley.

December 9 - Mat McBriar.  That's the answer to the question many fans had about who will be signed to replace Mike Scifres as he recovers from a fractured clavicle.  McBriar has been a consistent force for the past decade, and was a two-time Pro Bowl selection during his eight years with the Dallas Cowboys. Meanwhile, the Bolts brought back Jeff Baca, re-signing him to the practice squad.

December 8 -  With Mike Scifres fracturing his clavicle, the Bolts had to create a roster space for when they eventually sign his fill in.  They did so by waiving center Jeff Baca, and at the same time, waived CB Kendall James from the practice squad.  The team also waived guard/tackle Ryan Miller with an injury settlement.

December 4 -San Diego had to make three moves to the offensive line after guard/tackle Ryan Miller was lost for the year after slipping before practice. The team promoted center Jeff Baca to the active roster while signing guard/tackle Bryce Quigley to the practice squad. 

December 2 - The Bolts welcomed S Adrian Phillips back into the fold on Tuesday, re-signing him to the practice squad.  The safety has bounced between the PS and 53-man roster all year long, appearing in three games against the Miami Dolphins, Oakland Raiders and St. Louis Rams.  The Chargers released Phillips from the active roster on Saturday to make room for guard/tackle Jeremiah Sirles.  The team also waived NT Kwame Geathers from the Reserve-Injured list.

November 29 - Guard/tackle Jeremiah Sirles has impressed all year long on the practice squad, and with guard/tackle Ryan Miller questionable with a groin injury, the Bolts added Sirles off the practice squad. The 6-6, 315-pounder was a two-time All-Big Ten choice with the Cornhuskers, earning honorable mention as a senior and second-team as a junior.  To make room on the roster, the team waived Safety Adrian Phillips.

November 26 - The promotion of OLB Cordarro Law and guard/tackle Ryan Miller opened up two spots on the practice squad that the team filled with a new face and a familiar one. The Bolts added  C Jeff Baca, who most recently spent time on the Dallas Cowboys' practice squad.  The center was initially a sixth-round pick in the 2013 draft by the Minnesota Vikings.  Meanwhile, CB Richard Crawford is back with the team after being released on Saturday.  He joined the active roster on October 27 but was released on November 22 without seeing game action.

November 25 -For the third time this season, the Chargers lost a starting center for the year as Rich Ohrnberger was placed on IR due to a back injury.  He joins Nick Hardwick and Doug Legursky as other starting centers lost for the season.  The Bolts filled the open spot with a familiar face from the practice squad, signing OLB Cordarro Law to the 53-man roster. Law notched seven tackles, one sack, two tackles for loss, one pressure and one QB hit in three games earlier this season.

November 22 - The San Diego Chargers added G/T Ryan Miller to the active roster on Saturday.  Miller had been a member of the Chargers’ practice squad since signing Nov. 11. The 6-7, 320-pound former University of Colorado standout was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the fifth round (160th overall) in 2012 and appeared in eight games as a rookie. He was with the Denver Broncos during the 2014 offseason before being released at the end of training camp. To make room for Miller on the roster, the team released CB Richard Crawford.

November 18 - After being released from the active roster on Saturday, the Chargers have re-signed OLB Cordarro Law to the practice squadThe outside linebacker began the season on the practice squad before being added to the active roster prior to Week 4. Law takes the open spot made available after Adrian Phillips was signed to the 53-man roster.

November 15 - When San Diego returns to the field against Oakland on Sunday, the team will have a new look. Not only are RB Ryan Mathews, ILB Manti Te'o and OLB Jerry Attaochu probable to play after lengthy absences, but the Bolts made a quartet of moves on Saturday.  The team active OLB Melvin Ingram from “Reserve- Injured, Designated to Return” and promoted S Adrian Phillips from the practice squad.  Ingram appeared in two games before injuring his hip while Phillips made his NFL debut in the last game against Miami. In turn, the Chargers placed Jason Verrett on IR with a shoulder injury, and he will miss the remainder of the season.  The first round pick impressed with 19 tackles, four passes defensed and one interception in six games while showcasing strong coverage skills. The Bolts also released OLB Cordarro Law, who appeared in three games.

November 11 -  The Chargers added a young offensive lineman to the practice squad on Tuesday when they signed OL Ryan Miller.  The 6-7, 320-pound former Colorado star was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the fifth round (160th overall) in 2012 and appeared in eight games as a rookie. Able to play both guard and tackle, Miller was with the Denver Broncos this past offseason before being released at the end of training camp.  Earlier in the day, the Arizona Cardinals signed QB Ryan Lindley off the Bolts’ practice squad to their active roster, freeing up the spot used on Miller.

November 10 -  Melvin Ingram was listed as “Returned to Practice” on Monday by the team.  The outside linebacker remains on the Reserve-Injured; Designated to Return list he was placed on prior to Week 3 due to a hip injury.

November 4 - One day after being released from the active roster, S Adrian Phillips rejoined the Chargers as a member of the practice squad.  The safety was a member of the practice squad for most of the season, but was elevated to the active roster in order to play against Miami on Sunday.

November 1 - Less than 24 hours before kickoff against the Dolphins, San Diego promoted S Adrian Phillips to the active roster from the practice squad.  To make room, the team released RB Shaun Draughn.  Phillips joined the Bolts as an undrafted free agent in June and was among the last cut at the end of August.  He has been on the practice squad most of the season.

October 29 -  Two days after making a cornerback switch to the active roster, the Chargers made one on the practice squad.  The team added CB Kendall James and terminated CB Aaron Hester. James was a First Team All-CAA selection in 2013 playing for Maine and was selected this past June in the sixth round by the Minnesota Vikings.  He posted the third highest vertical jump for any CB at the scouting combine as his 39.0 vertical tied with Jason Verrett.  James most recently spent time on the Houston Texans' practice squad. 

October 27 -  Returning from a weekend away from the facility after a Thursday night game, the Bolts made a cornerback change on Monday, signing CB Richard Crawford while releasing veteran CB Richard Marshall.  Crawford is a 5-11, 192-pounder formerly with the Washington Redskins.  He had a promising rookie season in 2012, but hasn't appeared in a regular season game since due to injury.  He replaces Marshall, who appeared in 24 games over two seasons in San Diego.

October  8 - San Diego began the morning adding CB Aaron Hester to the practice squad to replace CB Greg Ducre who was signed to the Washington Redskins active roster.  Hester is 6-1, 207-pounder out of UCLA most recently with the Detroit Lions.  He appeared in three preseason contests and recorded five tacklesHester initially entered the league as an undrafted free agent with the Denver Broncos.

September 20 - Each NFL team is allowed to place one player on the "Reserve-Injured - Designated for Return list" per year, and less than 24 hours before kickoff in Buffalo, the Bolts used the designation on Melvin Ingram.  The third year linebacker is dealing with a hip injury, and the soonest he'll be allowed to return to game action is Week 11 against the Oakland Raiders.  San Diego did not use the tag in 2013 but did in 2012 on former WR Vincent Brown.

September 11 - With Nick Hardwick on IR, the Chargers added to their offensive line by signing Doug Legursky to improve their depth.  The burly interior lineman spent five seasons in Pittsburgh before joining the Bills in 2013.

September 6 - The team announced they waived Vincent Brown after reaching an injury settlement.

September 2 - One day after being waived, the Bolts brought running back Marion Grice back into the fold by signing him to their practice squad.

September 1 -The 53-man roster is a fluid entity that General Manager Tom Telesco and Head Coach Mike McCoy will always aim to improve.  To that end, the team tinkered with the defense by adding burly DT Ricardo Mathews and waiving RB Marion Grice.  The 6-0, 300-pound Mathews is a versatile two-way player that beefs up the defensive line.

August 31 - Less than 24 hours after announcing the 53-man roster, the Chargers began forming their practice squad.  Eight players who appeared with the team in the preseason made it including Javontee Herndon, Torrence Allen, Jeremiah Sirles, Craig Watts, Chas Alecxih, Cordarro Law, Greg Ducre and Adrian Phillips.  Meanwhile, former SDSU QB Ryan Lindley joined the squad after being released by the Arizona Cardinlas.

August 9 - Alvin Scioneaux was waived-injured after suffering a torn ACL in the preseason opening win over the Dallas Cowboys.  The Chargers signed Victor Aiyewa to take his place.  Aiyewa is a 6-1, 219-pound linebacker who's spent time with the Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Scioneaux was added to the Reserve/Injured list two days later.

August 1 - San Diego began training camp with 89 players, one short of the 90-man maximum allowed.  That changed on Friday when the Chargers added Lowell Rose.  The 6-1, 192-pound cornerback has been with both the San Francisco 49ers and New York Jets, and was an honorable All-Big 12 selection at Tulsa in 2012.
