The San Diego Tribune put out an interesting nugget. It says it’s no sure thing that undrafted rookie quarterback Scott Tolzien will make it onto the San Diego Chargers’ practice squad. The paper thinks he could be claimed.
It reports that the San Francisco 49ers likes Tolzien. San Francisco is looking for quarterbacks and Tolzien played well against them in the preseason finale. Teams usually don’t think undrafted free agents are going to be claimed, but a quarterback who had a good summer could be a different story.
If Tolzien does get claimed, the Chargers will likely look to add a young quarterback to the practice squad behind roster players Philip Rivers and Billy Volek. We’ll find out Sunday when teams can claim players who were cut Saturday.
