Chargers Releasing S Jahleel Addae


Eric Williams of ESPN reports that the Chargers are releasing S Jahleel Addae on Saturday. 

Addae, 29, wound up signing on with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Central Michigan back in 2013. He’s managed to make the 53-man roster in each of his 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. 

According to, releasing Addae will free up $5 million of available cap space while creating $1 million in dead money. 

In 2018, Addae appeared in all 16 games for the Chargers and recorded 75 tackles, one sack, an interception, a fumble recovery and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 76 safety out of 93 qualifying players.
