The Chargers announced via the team’s official website that they have signed offensive lineman Brett Boyko. The team released offensive lineman Zeth Ramsay in a corresponding move.
Boyko, 23, spent all of last year with the Philadelphia Eagles on their practice squad. He did not see the field for the team during the regular season.
Entering his second season in the NFL, Boyko played his college football at UNLV, starting 43 games at left tackle for the Rebels.
After watching the plethora of changes along the offensive line in 2015, Tom Telesco has made it clear in 2016 that he is doing his due diligence to ensure that the line has plenty of depth behind its starters.
It is hard to say whether or not Boyko is just a camp body or if he has a legitimate shot at possibly making the practice squad, but it’s comforting to see Telesco continue to fortify the offensive line.
The Chargers currently have 17 offensive lineman on their roster as of Thursday’s moves.
