The Los Angeles Chargers have added two new additions to the practice squad, bringing back CB Jeff Richards while adding a new face in LB Tre’Von Johnson. To make room, the team waived CB Channing Stribling and OT Jamar McGloster.
A 6-2, 210-pound cornerback out of Emporia State, Richards returns to the Bolts after spending all of last season on the team’s practice squad. He was initially claimed off waivers from the Carolina Panthers last September. Richards was with the Chargers throughout the entire offseason and had an impressive preseason, totaling 11 tackles and one pass defensed in four games. He most recently spent the beginning of this season on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ practice squad.
Meanwhile, Johnson is a 6-2, 232-pound linebacker who most recently spent time on the Seattle Seahawks’ practice squad. Johnson entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Arizona Cardinals in 2017 out of Weber State. He was waived during final roster reductions, and subsequently spent the majority of last season on the Dallas Cowboys’ practice squad before being promoted to the active roster in Week 17. Johnson appeared in four preseason games for the Cowboys this summer, registering nine tackles and one pass defensed.
