To the chagrin of only a select few from the fanbase of the Chargers, Jahleel Addae was given his walking papers just before the start of the free-agent signing period. With the emergence of rookie Derwin James and the solid play of Adrian Phillips last year, it was determined that Addae was expendable.
While the team has moved on from him, will any other team see Addae as a fit?
He recently turned 29 years old so he could still have at least a few solid seasons left in him. He is far from the best coverage safety, but he could bring a hard-hitting style to a team interested in getting more physical in the secondary.
Born in Florida, Addae could be a fit for the Jacksonville Jaguars. A team is not likely to look at Addae as a starter, but as a player who comes in as part of certain cub packages, Addae could really excel by playing with a lot less pressure on him.
The other safeties in Jacksonville are Ronnie Harrison, Jarrod Wilson, CJ Reavis and Cody Davis. It’s just an example, and other teams could be more interested and willing to give him more money, but that looks like a solid fit to me.
