Bigger role likely for Whittaker

By Bill Williamson

One of the reasons why the San Diego Chargers kept Fozzy Whittaker was his versatility.

The running back can do a lot of things and is likely adding another role to his plate – kick returner. The team cut Richard Goodman on Monday. He was the team’s kick returner the past two years. Whittaker was a standout return man at Texas.

Meanwhile, the Chargers added these players to the practice squad: tight end Jake Byrne, receiver Toney Clemons, defensive end Will Pericak and tackle Kenny Wiggins. One spot remains open on the eight-player squad.
