Brigham Back on the Field

The San Diego Chargers gave Andrew Brigham a tryout this weekend and added him to the roster as an undrafted free agent. A former defensive end at SDSU, he will perform drills at tight end.

Andrew Brigham has been out of football for the last year and was a defensive end in college. He played at SDSU after transferring from Mesa College in Arizona.

He joined SDSU for the 2000 season starting five games, registering 25 tackles and two sacks.

In 2001 Brigham had 29 tackles, seven for a loss, one forced fumble and 3 sacks earning honorable mention in the Mountain West Conference.

At 6-3, 260 pounds he is now being considered as a tight end and was given a chance by the Chargers as a walk on.

Brigham is a rarity these days. Unlike other stats padders he has always been willing to give up the recognition to his teammates. In one game during the 2001 season he was credited with two sacks and when asked about his solid performance he told reporters that neither of the sacks was his, and that he would make sure the people who deserved the credit for their play got it.
