Chargers Waive CB Pierre Desir, Promote WR Isaiah Burse To Active Roster


The San Diego Chargers announced Saturday that they’ve promoted WR Isaiah Burse to their active roster and placed CB Pierre Desir on waivers.

Desir, 26, is a former fourth-round pick of the Browns back in 2014. He’s in the third year of his four-year, $2.63 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $600,000 for the 2016 season.

The Browns waived him coming out of the preseason and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Chargers. San Diego waived him last weekend and just recently re-signed him.

In 2016, Desir appeared in four games for the Chargers and recorded three  tackles, no interceptions and a pass defense.

Burse, 24, originally signed on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Fresno State back in May of 2014. He lasted just over a year in Denver before he was cut loose and later signed to the Steelers’ practice squad.

The Chargers elected to sign him to a future/reserve contract this past January before cutting him loose a few weeks ago. Burse signed on to their practice squad soon after.

In 2016, Burse has been active for one game but has yet to record a single reception.
