The Chargers also promoted G Ryan Groy, LB Malik Jefferson and DE Jessie Lemonier and signed S Jahleel Addae and RB  Darius Bradwell to their active roster. 

It’s worth mentioning that the NFL changed the rules regarding injured reserve for the 2020 season and players can return from the list in just three weeks. 

Ingram, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Chargers back in 2012. He played out his four-year, $8.39 million rookie contract that included 7.61 million guaranteed before the Chargers picked up his fifth-year option that paid him $7,751,000 for the 2017 season.

The Chargers placed the franchise tag on Ingram in 2017 before later signing him to a four-year, $66 million contract with $42 million guaranteed. He is set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2021.

In 2020, Ingram has appeared in two games for the Chargers and recorded two tackles, no sacks, an interception and two passes defended.

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. He just recently signed on to the Chargers’ practice squad. 

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.
