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 OverTheCap.com, 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.
