Default Chargers Sign WR Mitchell Paige

Former Hoosier wideout. 5'7" 180. 2016 stats: 50 receptions, 646 yards, 4 touchdowns.

Henne says he has been pretty impressive in rookie camp so far.

Must have been impressive since it is not very common for these guys to get signed after rookie minicamp that aren't already signed as undrafted free agents.

WR seems to be the toughest spot to make the roster right now but good luck to him!! When do the Welker comparisons start?

Statement from the Chargers:
The Los Angeles Chargers have signed wide receiver Mitchell Paige, the team announced Tuesday.

A 5-8, 180-pound receiver from Indiana University, Paige participated in the Chargers’ rookie mini-camp last weekend on a tryout basis.

An honorable mention All-Big Ten selection and a team captain as a senior, Paige finished his Hoosiers’ career with 115 catches for 1,330 yards and 10 touchdowns. He also returned 39 punts for 360 yards and two additional scores. A former walk-on at Indiana, Paige appeared in 35 career games and he made 24 starts.

A native of Carmel, Indiana, Paige earned a degree in telecommunications.

To make room on the roster for Paige, the Chargers waived linebacker Carlos Fields.

Rookie tryouts are common and we've even signed a couple over the years... last year we signed Vi Teofilo after his tryout.

I highly doubt Paige makes the 53 roster but PS is always a possibility.

I know that they offer people to come and try out during the rookie mini camp but guys aren't getting contracts usually so it wiill be a longshot like you said.

Why couldn't the chargers be planning for the future? Wouldn't they want to put someone on the practice squad for this year and bring him in later in the season or next year.

Approved.

Transfer Paige from WR to RB.

And there is no reason Lamp can't play Safety.
