    The agent for Chargers PK Nate Kaeding says the team is skirting NFL rules in hopes of avoiding having to pay out $1.2 million in termination pay to the veteran kicker after being placed on IR last week.

    On Friday, agent Rick Smith said Kaeding showed up at the Chargers' facility, where he kicked for trainers, showing them he was healthy. Instead of releasing him, Smith says the Chargers want Kaeding to see their team doctor.

    That would stall any action on Kaeding's status, and Smith says the delay will allow the team to place Kaeding on waivers next Tuesday, the first day vested veteran players can be placed on waivers. If another team picks up Kaeding off waivers, the Chargers would not have to pay him the $1.2 million.
