The San Diego Chargers made a pair of moves on Tuesday, signing safety Adrian Phillips to the active roster and defensive lineman Chuka Ndulue (CHOO-kuh en-DOO-loo-ay) to the practice squad.
The 5-11, 210-pound Phillips appeared in three games (Week 2-4) after starting the season on the practice squad. He registered six tackles with one tackle for loss before being waived on Oct. 12 to make room for TE Antonio Gates prior to Week 5. Phillips was immediately signed back to the practice squad.
Ndulue is a 6-3, 289-pound defensive lineman most recently with the Denver Broncos. He signed with Denver as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Oklahoma, where he appeared in 45 games from 2011-14, totaling 140 tackles, 17 tackles for loss and 12 sacks. He played all positions along the defensive line during the preseason in Denver and registered half a sack. Ndulue began the season on the Broncos’ practice squad before being released on Sept. 22.
About the San Diego Chargers
The San Diego Chargers originated as the Los Angeles Chargers of the American Football League in 1960. The team relocated to San Diego in 1961 and captured the American Football League championship in 1963. It finished first in five of the 10 AFL seasons. Since joining the National Football League when the two leagues merged in 1970, the Chargers have won 11 AFC West division titles, including five titles in the last 11 seasons. Overall, the team has played in 28 playoff games. The Chargers were purchased by construction leader and real estate developer Alex G. Spanos in 1984 and has been under the guidance of Spanos’ eldest son Dean, the team’s current Chairman of the Board, since 1994. That same season the team won the AFC Championship and played in Super Bowl XXIX. The Chargers are Southern California’s only NFL franchise and all Chargers games are annually the highest-rated television programming in San Diego. The Chargers play their home games at Qualcomm Stadium and the Spanos family, nationally renowned as one of San Diego’s and the NFL’s most philanthropic families, has invested millions of dollars in an effort to secure a new Super Bowl-quality stadium for San Diego.
