Bio

In a typical NFL season, a small handful of undrafted rookies will earn their way onto an NFL roster. Addae was one of the chosen few.

He began to turn heads in the team’s offseason program, and after a strong training camp, he made the team’s opening day roster. Addae started the season playing primarily on special teams, but as the season wore on, the coaching staff gained more confidence in his ability and by late in the year, he was a defensive regular. Addae ended up making several big defensive plays late in the season and he led the secondary with 13 tackles in the playoffs. When the Chargers beat Kansas City in their regular-season finale to qualify for the playoffs for the first time since 2009, Addae made a key third-down pass breakup during the Bolts’ game-winning defensive stand. In the postseason, he had a key fumble recovery in the team’s AFC Wild Card Playoff win at Cincinnati and a forced fumble a week later in the divisional playoffs at Denver.

Addae didn’t exactly come out of nowhere to play in the NFL. A Valrico, Florida native, Addae had a highly decorated career at Central Michigan where he was All-Mid-American Conference three times and the team’s defensive player of the year twice. A physical player who has dreadlocks that flow from the underside of his helmet, Addae was given the nickname “The Predator” by his CMU teammates. His older brother, Jahmile, also played Division-I football, starting four years at West Virginia. Jahmile was a two-year team captain for the Mountaineers and a finalist for several coveted postseason awards. After a brief NFL career, Jahmile transitioned into coaching and now is working as a defensive graduate assistant at the University of Arizona.
