Damion Square emerged as a valuable member of the Chargers’ defensive line last year.
They weren’t about to let him get away, agreeing to terms on a two-year deal with the 28-year old on Friday.
Square appeared in 11 games in 2016, totaling 31 tackles, six tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks and 10 pressures. He started the team’s final seven games after Brandon Mebane was lost for the year with a biceps injury.
The 6-2, 293-pound nose tackle entered the league as an undrafted free agent with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013. He appeared in 10 games before joining the Chiefs the following year. Kansas City waived Square midway through the 2014 campaign, and the Chargers promptly scooped him up. He split time between the active roster and the practice squad over his first two seasons with the Bolts before becoming a key member of the defensive line rotation last year.
Square played collegiately at Alabama, where he won three national championships. He appeared in 40 games for the Crimson Tide, recording 93 tackles, 18.5 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks.
