Chargers OLB Thomas Keiser was arrested on a misdemeanor battery charge Sunday night.
Hours after the Bolts beat the Chiefs to secure a playoff spot, Keiser and another man had an altercation that turned into a fight at a San Diego-area restaurant. Keiser was arrested at 10:50 PM and posted $8,000 bail and is no longer in jail. He's expected to play Sunday against the Bengals. Tue, Dec 31, 2013 08:36:00 AM

Chargers promoted OLB Thomas Keiser off their practice squad.

Keiser was a highly productive pass rusher at Stanford, and had four sacks in eight games with the Panthers in 2011. Unfortunately, he's replacing Dwight Freeney on the 53-man roster and that will be an enormous downgrade.

Chargers waived OLB Thomas Keiser.

Keiser recorded 2.5 sacks in the regular season dress rehearsal against the Cardinals' patch-work offensive line. It doesn't bode well for him that he couldn't make a Chargers team starving for pass rushers.

Chargers signed OLB Thomas Keiser, formerly of the Panthers.

Keiser (6-foot-3, 261) was cut by the Panthers three days ago. The 24-year-old undrafted free agent out of Stanford has 4.5 career sacks in 311 defensive snaps, and he'll compete at a wafer thin outside 'backer spot in San Diego.

Panthers waived DE Thomas Keiser.

A third-year undrafted free agent out of Stanford, Keiser notched four sacks as a rookie, but played just 106 snaps before an elbow injury ended his 2012. Keiser's release is a surprising move by a Panthers team with little to no proven sack production behind DE starters Charles Johnson and Greg Hardy.

Panthers placed DE Thomas Keiser (elbow) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Keiser was a second-year special teamer that had four tackles in four games this season.

Panthers signed DE/OLB Thomas Keiser from their practice squad.

Undrafted after 27 starts at Stanford, Keiser was signed to Carolina's practice squad in early September. He'll add depth up front while contributing primarily on special teams.
