Once the #3 rated QB, Now a Charger

Once named the third best quarterback in America, Cory Paus joined the San Diego Chargers as an undrafted free agent this past weekend.

Paus a 6-0, 218 pound quarterback out of UCLA ended his career as a Bruin with 439 completions on 816 attempts for a 53.7 completion rate for 6,877 yards, 42 touchdowns and 32 interceptions.

Paus started 32 of the 35 games he appeared in hitting on 109 of 184 passes (59.2 percent) for 1,647 yards, 10 touchdowns and 6 interceptions as a senior.

Injuries have followed Paus throughout his college career. In 1999 he suffered a left shoulder dislocation, separated his right shoulder and fractured his collarbone in 2000, sprained his right thumb in 2001 and fractured his right ankle in 2002.

Paus is the third quarterback invited into camp joining Rob Adamson and Cleo Lemon.

Drew Brees is still a month away from resuming practice and Seth Burford is over in NFL Europe playing for Barcelona. Paus was added to take some of the pressure off Doug Flutie, but he faces an uphill battle in his quest for a roster spot.
