Bio

Keiser was signed to the active roster on Oct. 1, 2013. He was released by San Diego when the roster was pared down to 53 players and immediately signed with the practice squad.  Before signing with the Chargers, he spent two seasons with the Carolina Panthers, appearing in 14 games and registering nine tackles, 4.5 sacks, five tackles for loss and one interception.  This preseason, he recorded nine tackles and 2.5 sacks.

At Stanford, Keiser was an honorable mention all-Pac-10 defensive end-outside linebacker. He was also a member of the Stanford Conservative Society, a group that provided venues for conservatives, libertarians, and moderates to meet, mingle, discuss their views, listen to prominent political leaders, and occasionally work on community service projects – such as their annual “Christmas Cards for Soldiers” event. A science, technology and society major with an interest in politics and current events, Keiser served in a leadership capacity, acting as a vice president and financial officer for the group.
