Chargers add two

The San Diego Chargers added guard Tyson Claybo and wide receiver Willie Quinnie to the practice squad today. Tight end Chad Hayes and linebacker Howard Hodges were both released to make room.

Tyson Claybo, 6—foot-6, 314 from Wake Forrest originally signed with the Broncos this year as a rookie free agent and was later signed to the Giants' practice squad.

Claybo can play both tackle and guard and is one of the rare people who have a wingspan that surpasses his height. His wingspan is 10-12 inches more than his height of 6-foot-6.

Willie Quinnie, 6-foot-2, 180 from the University of Alabama-Birmingham was signed as a free agent by the Oakland Raiders in 2003.

Quinnie then went to training camp with the Atlanta Falcons in 2004 before being released on the final cutdown. He is an NFL Europe alum and had some success out there. He finished third in the league in both receptions (46) and punt return average (8.8).

He finished his career with 90 receptions for 1,395 yards (15.5 avg.) and 10 touchdowns. Only Robert Porter (92, 1991-94), Cedrick Buchannon (116, 1992-95) and Derrick Ingram (207, 1991-94) caught more passes for the UAB in a career. His 10 scores rank third on the school's all-time list while his 1,395 yards rank fourth. Played in 29 games, adding 462 yards on 42 punt returns (11.0 avg.), the third-best career totals in school annals.
