Chargers Signing S Jahleel Addae To Practice Squad


Aaron Wilson reports that the Chargers are signing S Jahleel Addae tot heir practice squad once he completes the COVID-19 protocol. 

The Chargers will need to make a corresponding roster move, as they’re currently over the practice squad limit:

  1. RB Darius Bradwell
  2. DB John Brannon
  3. LB Cole Christiansen
  4. WR Jeff Cotton
  5. NT Breiden Fehoko
  6. G Nathan Gilliam
  7. G Ryan Groy
  8. WR Tyron Johnson
  9. DE Jessie Lemonier
  10. DB Quenton Meeks
  11. DT T.J. Smith
  12. C Cole Toner
  13. DB Donte Vaughn
  14. DE Joe Gaziano
  15. LB Malik Jefferson
  16. RB Troymaine Pope
  17. S Jahleel Addae 

Addae recently visited with the Chargers so he was on their roster as a potential addition. 

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.
