Lions signed DT Ogemdi Nwagbuo.

Nwagbuo will get a two-game audition with Nick Fairley (shoulder) on IR. The former undrafted free agent out of Michigan State brings 35 games of NFL experience during stints with the Chargers and Panthers.

Panthers waived DT Ogemdi Nwagbuo.

An undrafted free agent in 2009, Nwagbuo appeared in 35 games between the Chargers and Panthers the past three seasons. He has just 44 career tackles and 1.5 sacks, but capable of playing both end and tackle, he should crack someone's roster in 2012.

Panthers signed DT Ogemdi Nwagbuo, formerly of the Chargers.

Coach Ron Rivera is desperate for size on the interior, and he has history with Nwagbuo from their time to together in San Diego. Nwagbuo recorded three tackles in four games with the Chargers earlier this season.

Chargers waived DL Ogembi Nwagbuo.

The Bolts appreciate Nwagbuo's versatility with the ability to play nose tackle and either end spot, but he hadn't seen action since Week 5. The Chargers are looking for more of a pass-rushing presence up front.

Chargers re-signed NT Ogemdi Nwagbuo.

Luis Castillo is in danger of missing at least half of the season with a broken tibia, so the Chargers brought back a familiar face. Nwagbuo, 25, can play both nose tackle and left defensive end in the 3-4. He appeared in 15 games without a start last season, racking up 19 tackles and a half-sack.

Chargers waived NT Ogemdi Nwagbuo.

Nwagbuo has been a regular contributor in San Diego over the past two seasons, but his performance was a different story. Still, he can play nose tackle and end in the 3-4. It wouldn't be surprising if he attracted some interest.

Chargers re-signed exclusive rights free agent NT Ogemdi Nwagbuo.

Nwagbuo is a former undrafted free agent from Michigan State. According to Pro Football Focus, the 25-year-old played 261 defensive snaps last season and didn't embarrass himself against the run, although he offers little in the pass rushing department. He'll return as Antonio Garay's backup.
Wed, Mar 2, 2011 06:13:00 PM

Chargers NT Ogemdi Nwagbuo left Friday night's preseason game with a concussion.

Nwagbuo started over Antonio Garay in something of a surprise. The high-effort, if undersized nose tackle won't return but will be ready for Week 1.
Fri, Aug 27, 2010 09:22:00 PM

Chargers placed NT Ogemdi Nwagbuo (ankle) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Nwagbuo started nine games after NT Jamal Williams' season-ending injury, but wore down badly late in the year and was miscast as a 3-4 nose tackle at 6'4/303 soaking wet. He should have a spot on the roster in 2010, but Bolts are sure to be on the lookout for a better solution this offseason.
Wed, Dec 9, 2009 02:51:00 PM

Chargers NT Ogemdi Nwagbuo (ankle, questionable) missed his third straight day of practice Friday.

We had to copy and paste Nwagbuo's name because it's so hard to spell. His injury gives the Giants even more reason to go run heavy against San Diego's No. 27 rush defense with Eli Manning struggling and Brandon Jacobs hot. Consider Jacobs an RB1 and Ahmad Bradshaw a high-upside flex.
