Danario Alexander says he’s signing with the Chargers

Wide receiver Danario Alexander’s career never blossomed in St. Louis because of endless injury problems, but it appears he’ll get another chance in San Diego.

Alexander tweeted Thursday that he is signing a contract with the Chargers, ending a period of unemployment that started when the Rams cut him at the end of the preseason. Alexander recently worked out for the Bills, but will wind up with San Diego as they return from their bye next week to start trying to distance themselves from Monday night’s second half debacle agains the Broncos.

At 6-foot-5 with great athleticism, Alexander would have been a highly valued prospect coming out of Missouri if not for his incessant knee issues. He wound up going undrafted and signed with the Rams, for whom he played 18 games and caught 46 passes in 2010 and 2011.

With Vincent Brown out at least a little while longer, there’s a spot that Alexander could use to make a case for sticking around.┬áThe Chargers have talked about scaling their offense back in the coming weeks in an effort to eliminate the turnovers that fueled the aforementioned second half debacle, however, and it remains to be seen how that decision will wind up impacting their receiving corps.

    DX is great kid and a tremendous talent, but those gimpy knees aren’t good for more than 5-10 snaps a game.

    This is the kid who while trying to get the Rams to clear him of injuries did a back flip in the coaches office to say, “coach, c’mon I’m ready to play”…

    I read today that Nate Kaeding’s groin is doing better, and there’s noises that he will return after the bye week. Obviously the Bolts would release Nick Novak, freeing up a roster spot. But, for the life of me, I don’t know why they haven’t signed a decent O-tackle. Gaither is very goodwhen healthy, but he isn’t healthy, and his back-up, Mike Harris, is still learning, having never played Left Tackle for UCLA.
    Odd choice to sign a WR, especially with Vincent Brown due to come off IR-reserve soon.
