Chargers claim DT Chas Alecxih

The San Diego Chargers made a roster move, but it wasn’t the one most expected.

The Chargers claimed defensive tackle Chas Alecxih off of waivers on Friday. The 6-3, 304-pound University of Pittsburgh product was released by the Chiefs on Thursday.

San Diego released safety Brandon Taylor earlier this week, so with Alecxih the team is back up to 90 players on the team's roster. The Chargers had free-agent cornerback Brandon Flowers in for a visit on Wednesday, but so far no agreement has been announced by the team.

With Alecxih, the Chargers now have six defensive tackles on the roster -- Corey Liuget, Sean Lissemore, Kwame Geathers, Tenny Palepoi and Ryan Carrethers.
