Chargers Sign TE Lance Kendricks


The Chargers announced that they have signed veteran TE Lance Kendricks on Tuesday.

Los Angeles also signed S Adarius Pickett to their practice squad. 

Los Angeles brought Kendricks in for a workout on Tuesday, so they were clearly impressed enough to sign him. 

Kendricks, 31, is a former second-round pick of the Rams back in 2011. He was in the third year of his four-year, $18.5 million contract when the Rams released him during the offseason.

Kendricks later signed a two-year, $4 million contract that included a $1.2 million signing bonus with the Packers back in 2017. After entering the open market as an unrestricted free agent, the Patriots brought him in on a one-year deal and re-signed him to another one-year contract in July. 

However, New England elected to cut him loose last week. The Chargers were the first reported interested team in him since becoming a free agent. 

In 2018, Kendricks appeared in all 16 games for the Packers and recorded 19 receptions for 170 yards receiving and one touchdown.
