On Thursday afternoon, the Chargera announced that they have released defensive back Quenton Meeks from the practice squad.

Most recently, Meeks was activated from the practice squad for the games against the Raiders and Miami, playing mainly on special teams while providing depth with Brandon Facyson currently residing on the reserve-COVID-19 list. He recorded no statistics during those games.

Meeks played his college ball at Stanford from 2015-2017. Following the 2018 draft, Meeks signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent. He was promoted to the active roster in October of that year and eventually waived in August of 2019.

Last October, Meeks was signed to the Chargers practice squad.

Meeks’ father is longtime NFL and former Chargers defensive backs coach, Ron Meeks.

It will be interesting to see if there is a corresponding move coming shortly from the team. Although Chris Harris Jr. is returning from IR, they’re still somewhat shallow at the position. A move like this usually means they need the space for someone else.
