The Chargers took advantage of their high spot in the waiver claim order, adding three players to the mix the day after picking a 53-man roster.

Per the league’s transaction wire, the Chargers claimed running back Andre Williams from the Giants, cornerback Pierre Desir from the Browns and defensive tackle Caraun Reid from the Lions.

They’ll have to remove three guys who made it through¬†“final cuts” to clear the roster spots.

Williams has shown the ability to be a productive back in the past, or at least his rookie year. The former fourth-round pick tailed off last season, but could get a chance behind Melvin Gordon, as they have Danny Woodhead entrenched as a third-down back.
