San Diego Chargers

Brandon Siler, who also serves as the Chargers backup long snapper, earned a spot on the Chargers roster and in 2007, he contributed on special teams, gathering the second highest amount of special teams tackles. In 2008, he continued his great special teams play and received more time on defense. This time was magnified with the recent 4 game suspension of Stephen Cooper.[5]

On July 23, he signed a four year, 1.7 million dollar contract with the Chargers.
