Chargers Poach Chiefs Practice Squad Tight End

All is fair in love and war and competition between NFL teams.

The San Diego Chargers wrote another chapter in that story on Monday when they signed TE Jake Byrne off the Chiefs practice squad.

Of course, the Chargers host the Chiefs this coming Sunday in the regular-season finale and they had an opening on the roster for a tight end. That came after San Diego placed TE John Phillips on the injured-reserve list.

Byrne was added to the Chiefs practice squad last week and the Wisconsin product went through all the preparation for the Indianapolis game.

The Chiefs also made two other moves on Monday involving their practice squad. They released WR Fred Williams and signed former Mizzou wide receiver Jerrell Jackson.

Out of Houston, the 6-0, 192-pound Jackson was not drafted in 2012 and was signed by the Houston Texans. He did not make the team’s roster and eventually was signed by Jacksonville where he was on the practice squad late last year. Jackson was activated for the Jaguars final regular season game. He went to training camp this past summer with Chicago.
