"What a great guy to have with us. We got down there, and I said, 'Let's make sure he gets in the end zone,' and he did a good job of getting in. I was very happy for him."

There's a good chance Wiggins makes the team. Last year, he was cut out of camp but signed by the Chargers in the second week of the season, after an injury to guard D.J. Fluker. He remained with the team through the end of the season, showing his value at left and right guard -- and even at right tackle, at times -- when more injuries left the offensive line depleted.
