    Former University of New Mexico standout Nick Speegle signed with the San Diego Chargers, the team announced on Wednesday. Speegle, an all-Mountain West Conference linebacker for the Lobos in 2004, was a sixth-round draft pick of the Cleveland Browns in '05.

    Speegle appeared in 14 games as a rookie with the Browns, mostly on special teams. He finished fifth on the team with 11 special teams tackles, but was waived by Cleveland last month.

    "He's obviously a very bright kid," San Diego head coach Marty Schottenheimer said. "He was a good special teamer in Cleveland. Those are positive things. He's got size and speed."

    Prior to his time in Cleveland, Speegle (6-6, 250) was a four-year starter at New Mexico. He finished his collegiate career with 317 tackles, good for 14th all-time at UNM, and ranks sixth in school history with 38.5 tackles for loss. With the Browns, he gained experience in the 3-4 defense and was extremely active in the community.

    Speegle replaced offensive tackle Leander Jordan on the Chargers' roster after Jordan was placed on the injured reserve list.

    The Browns are going to regret cutting him, but unfortunately he was the odd man out because of the way the Browns drafted. Speegs was a beast on special teams, hopefully he will get a decent shot in San Diego. He is a good guy and his fiancee Jamie is smoking hot.
