It is a good move for the Chargers to keep their players and keep some consistency on the roster. Stuckey may get more opportunities to play on defense in the coming season with different players settling into their roles on the roster. Marcus Gilchrist is used more in the slot and at the nickel and Jahleel Addae has settled in as the strong safety. Stuckey was getting more action during dime packages.
Stuckey also was a special teams captain and was one of the best on the roster at getting down the field and making a play. It is good to keep that around on the roster.
