Jeremy Fowler of ESPN mentioned a few weeks ago that there was mutual interest between the Chargers and Addae.
This came after the news that Derwin James was out of the season with a knee injury.
Addae, 30, wound up signing on with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Central Michigan back in 2013. He managed to make the 53-man roster in each of his first three years in the NFL.
The Chargers elected to re-sign Addae to a four-year deal worth $22 million that included $8 million guaranteed back in 2017 but he was cut loose last March in a move that freed up $5 million of available cap space while creating $1 million in dead money.
Addae signed with the Texans on a one-year deal for the 2019 season.
In 2019, Addae appeared in all 16 games for the Texans and recorded 44 tackles, two interceptions and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 64 safety out of 86 qualifying players.
