Chargers sign DE Guy, release DE Wynn
By Eric D. Williams
SAN DIEGO -- The Chargers made a roster move on Tuesday to add depth to the defensive line.
San Diego claimed defensive end Lawrence Guy off of waivers. In order to make room for Guy on the 53-man roster, the Chargers waived defensive end Jarius Wynn.
A seventh-round selection in the 2011 draft by Green Bay, the 23-year-old Guy spent his rookie season with the Packers on the injured reserve list after experiencing concussion issues during training camp.
In 2012, the Colts signed Guy to the team’s active roster from Green Bay’s practice squad. At 6-foot-4 and 318 pounds, the Arizona State product played nine games for Indianapolis in 2012 and two games this season, finishing with four tackles and a blocked field goal returned for a touchdown against Seattle last week.
In 11 career games in Indianapolis, Guy posted 25 tackles and a sack.
A fifth-year pro out of Georgia, Wynn signed a one-year deal with the Chargers as a free agent in April. Wynn, 27, finished with a combined three tackles and a sack for the Chargers this season.
