Square has spent the past seven seasons with the Chargers, appearing in 81 games with 24 starts. He hasn't missed a game in each of the past four seasons.
Square has been a fixture of the Chargers’ defensive line for as long as some young fans can rememeber. After spending time with the Eagles and Kansas City during the first two seasons of his career, Square signed with the then-San Diego Chargers during the 2014 season. He would receive his first NFL start and play in six other games in the subsequent 2015 season, finishing with six tackles and a fumble recovery.
During the Chargers’ 12-4 campaign back in 2018, Square played a pivotal role up front for a defense that missed Joey Bosa for nine games. Square started six times, including several times at the team’s base end spot for Joey, and earned career-highs in both tackles (31), sacks (3), and pass deflections (3). In 2016, Square recorded his career-high of four tackles-for-loss on top of 2.5 sacks, his only other year with multiple quarterback takedowns.
Square was a rock-steady presence for the Chargers and easily one of the more well-liked players over his tenure with the team. He’ll certainly be missed and we wish him the best of luck in Cleveland.
