The Chargers signed running back Andre Williams to the practice squad, as Adam Caplan of ESPN.com tweets. Williams was dropped from the Bolts’ active roster over the weekend. Andre Williams (vertical)

On Saturday, the Chargers opted to promote tight end Asante Cleveland from the practice squad and dropped Williams in order to make room. Despite having some success as a member of the Giants, Williams passed through waivers unclaimed, allowing him to stay in sunny San Diego.

In 2014, Williams racked up more than 700 rushing yards, but he was not as effective in 2015 for the G-Men. Still, Williams is a physical runner with experience and someone the Chargers can call on if they are hit by the injury bug again. The Chargers have already lost Branden Oliver and Danny Woodhead for the year.

    Wasn’t this the guy with health problems who was never supposed to play again? Or was that a different Giants back?

    NY GIANTS GM JERRY REESE IS A MORON. HE HAS NO COCEPT OF HOW TO DRAFT OR SIGN DECENT FREE AGENTS. THE MAIN WEAKNESS OF THE TEAM WAS O-LINE AND RB’S. YET NO VALUABLE OFF SEASON ADDITIONS. WHEN G-MEN FINISH 6-10 AGAIN REESE WILL BE FIRED. THEY SHOULD HAVE KEPT ANDRE WILLIAMS
