The Los Angeles Chargers brought in a new linebacker on Tuesday, signing Kyle Coleman shortly before taking the field at training camp. To make room, the team waived DL Albert Havili.
This marks Coleman’s second stint with the Bolts as he signed with the team midway through last year’s training camp. He appeared in three preseason games with the Chargers, highlighted by a 30-yard pick-six against the San Francisco 49ers. The linebacker also finished with four tackles.
The 6-0, 231-pound Coleman appeared in 44 games with 11 starts over his collegiate career, playing his first three seasons at Arkansas State before transferring his senior year to Arkansas-Pine Bluff. Prior to joining the Chargers, he also spent parts of the past two seasons on the Seattle Seahawks’ practice squad.
