On Tuesday afternoon, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reported the latest list of workouts and others transactions reported by NFL teams and the Chargers apparently brought another old face back into the building.

According to the memo, the Bolts worked out former safety Jaylen Watkins, who most-recently started three games for them last season. Prior to the Chargers, Watkins spent four seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles.

In 14 games last season, Watkins 29 total tackles with a tackle-for-loss and one pass breakup.

The team is likely looking to bring back Watkins to add some support and/or competition to the free safety position with Nasir Adderley’s rough start to the season. The second-year player has struggled with tackling angles and was on the wrong end of two different scoring plays by the Broncos on Sunday.

If Nas continues to be a liability in coverage, the Bolts may be forced to cut into his snaps going forward.
