Sometimes you just have to call your own shot.
Earlier this morning I wrote about two defensive tackles that the Chargers should consider signing: Linval Joseph and Michael Pierce. It turns out the team had the same idea.
The Chargers have come to terms with Joseph on a two-year, $17 million deal, giving them the run-stuffing presence they’ve needed for quite some time.
The #Chargers have improved their offensive line in free agency, now beef up their defensive line. https://t.co/smwbvyubeE— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 18, 2020
This past season, Joseph started 13 games and finished with 44 total tackles, six tackles-for-loss, three sacks, and a forced fumble. He played 553 snaps while rotating in with a host of other young defensive tackles in Minnesota. He’s not going to be a three-down type of player for the Chargers, but that’s okay. They don’t need him to be that type of player. He’s a great veteran presence and he’s got a heck of a personality. I have a feeling he’s going to be one of the most fun players in the locker room during his time in Los Angeles.
