Bercovici becomes the 7th player to sign a futures deal with the Chargers since their season ended. The full list includes:
- OT Brett Boyko (NFLTR)
- DB Randall Evans
- DB Michael Lee
- LB Chris McCain
- DB Adrian McDonald
- TE Jake McGee
- QB Michael Bercovici
Future/reserve contracts are essentially an opportunity for players compete for a roster spot in offseason workouts and during training camp.
Bercovici, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona State back in May of last year. However, he was unfortunately cut loose coming out of the preseason and was never signed to a practice squad during the year.
During his college career, Bercovici threw for 5,332 yards while completing 60.5 percent of his passes to go along with 42 touchdowns and 13 interceptions over the course of 28 games.
