Biography

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

  • Recognized in 2018 by The Associated Press as a first-team All-Pro at DB and a second-team All-Pro at PR, joining S Derwin James (first-team S and second-team DB in 2018) as the first Chargers in history to be named an AP All-Pro at two positions.
  • Named AFC Defensive Player of the Week (Week 9 at Seattle) and AFC Special Teams Player of the Week (Week 13 at Pittsburgh) in 2018, recording a pick-six at Seattle and a punt return for a touchdown at Pittsburgh.
  • His interception return for a touchdown and punt return for a touchdown in 2018 made him the first player since 2011 and seventh since 2000 to do so in a single season.
  • With four sacks as a rookie in 2017, became the first DB to post at least 3.5 sacks as a rookie and the second-ever to have four (Bill Bates, 1983)
  • Became just the sixth player in NFL history and second DB ever to post multiple pick-sixes and at least four sacks over the first two seasons of his career (S Roy Williams, 2002-03).
  • Was one of five defenders in 2017 (Cincinnati DE Carlos Dunlap, New Orleans DE Cameron Jordan, Washington LB Ryan Kerrigan and Indianapolis LB John Simon) to post a pick-six and three-plus sacks.
  • Recorded a 33-yard punt return in the 2018 AFC Wild Card at Baltimore to set a Chargers postseason record for longest punt return.
