Biography

The Chargers signed nose tackle Brandon Mebane, a former Super Bowl champion with the Seattle Seahawks, to a three-year deal in March.

A Los Angeles native, Mebane returns to Southern California after spending his first nine NFL seasons in Seattle where he played in 142 games with 134 starts, including 11 postseason games and nine starts. His career totals (postseason included) are 386 tackles, 15.5 sacks and a pair of forced fumbles. He was named All-Pro by Sports Illustrated in 2013.

Mebane comes from a very close-knit and athletic family. His father, Walter, Jr., played basketball at Norfolk State (Va.). His mother, Joyce, is an outstanding bowler and softball player who also has a history in roller derby. Mebane’s grandfather, Walter, Sr., was a 6-8, 320-pound defensive tackle who played at Hampton (Va.) University. And his older brother, Walter III, played middle linebacker at Temple.

Mebane’s father later served in the Air Force and his mother spent 40-plus years working as an aerospace engineer for Northrup Grumman. Several of Mebanes uncles also served in the armed forces.

Mebane’s wife, Amena, is a lawyer and the couple has two children – Makai and Mahailey.

Mebane’s hobbies include listening to music with his kids and watching HGTV and the DIY Networks.
