Chargers sign UDFA WR Brelan Chancellor, DL Ricky Tjong-A-Tjoe


The Chargers have agreed to terms UDFA WR Brelan Chancellor and DL Ricky Tjong-A-Tjoe.

Brelan Chancellor is a 5’9″ 188 lb. wideout from North Texas. He ran a 4.51 40-yard dash at the combine and a 41″ vertical. He was the 2013 USA Conference Special Teams Player of the Year for his efforts as a returner. He has huge hands and has great vision in the open field. He projects as a returner and possibly a slot receiver.

Ricky Tjong-A-Tjoe played defensive tackle at Boise State, although at 6’3″, 303 lbs. he projects as a defensive end in the 3-4. He is an Amsterdam native who, according to Michael Gehlken, visited with the Chargers prior to the draft. He is very raw, but recorded 50 tackles for Boise State this past season.

    Chancellor could be looked as a replacement for Royal, or Brown in the slot.
    Tjong-A-Tjoe, i could see as a guy to compete for depth at a DE. since he played in 3-4, that is plus since the learning curve for him will be smaller.

    • Nick Mansoor

      Tevin Reece can easily replace Royal

        Royal played injured last year and he’s not getting any younger…that takes it’s toll on the body.
        That’s the only knock on Eddie…He can never stay healthy. If Tevin Reece can make the final roster and still have Eddie, it’ll be crazy for San Diego’s opponents..

          I like the way you think. I like Royal a lot. He seems to be a good dude too. I wish he could stay healthy though. I think all the practices he missed throughout the season hurt his production as well as his rapport with Philip.

      • arnie

        I agree, but this isn’t Reece post.

    Don’t know why we’re signing guys that are under 6 foot as receivers rivers needs 6’2+ receivers

    • Nick in PB

      I’m with you there. I was hoping this draft would produce a taller receiver for us. DX was so much of a mismatch when he was on the field. So wish his fortunes had changed.

  • Tyler Overocker

    went to high school with Chancellor he can ball dont worry this guy is built for a slot receiver and knows how to find the ball
