The Los Angeles Chargers announced on Monday that they re-signed a pair of restricted free agents in linebacker Nick Dzubnar and wide receiver Geremy Davis. Dzubnar inked a two-year contract while Davis signed a one-year deal.
The Bolts retain one of the league’s special teams mavens in Dzubnar as he led the NFL a year ago with 21 special teams tackles. The total was four more than any other player in the league.
Dzubnar originally joined the Bolts in 2015 as an undrafted free agent. He led the Chargers in special teams tackles that year, but missed most of the 2016 campaign after suffering a Week 4 ACL injury. The linebacker bounced back in 2017 to appear in 13 games. Overall, he has recorded 42 tackles in 33 career games.
The 6-1, 240-pound Dzubnar is a local product who grew up in Mission Viejo. He played collegiately at Cal Poly - San Luis Obispo, leaving as the school’s second-leading tackler (414 career tackles) while setting a single-season record in 2014 (167).
Meanwhile, Davis is a 6-3, 217-pound wideout who was initially a sixth-round pick of the New York Giants in 2015. He caught two passes in 10 games as a rookie before being claimed off waivers midway through 2016 by the Chargers. The UConn product spent the majority of 2017 on the team’s active roster but appeared in only two games.
