The Chargers may have lost Sunday to the New York Jets, but they've won over their former rookie center.
Colin Baxter, a numbers crunch casualty in the final round of the team's training camp cuts, has agreed to join the team's practice squad and will be at practice Thursday, a league source said.
The former Arizona Wildcat chose the Chargers practice squad over the Jets practice squad, as first reported by Manish Meta of the New York Daily News.
The source told NBCSanDiego that Baxter, considered to have a nasty streak, "just felt he had a better long-term future in San Diego." He started two games with the Jets in place of center Nick Mangold but was waived Tuesday.
The signing is the latest boon for the Chargers practice squad, which added running back Jordan Todman after he escaped waivers Monday.
