The deal is for $22.5MM, according to Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune (on Twitter), who adds that $10MM of this amount is guaranteed.
Addae, 27, was ranked as one of our top ten safeties in this year’s class and although he did not make the cut for our Top 50 Free Agents list, he did earn honorable mention. If he had turned in a full season last year, he probably would have been slotted higher.
Addae broke is collarbone in September and wound up appearing in only eight games. For his career, he has 48 appearances and 27 starts on his resume. In his half-season, he finished out with 48 tackles and his first career interception.
Even though he’s just 5’11” and 195 pounds, Addae is a hard-hitter and the Chargers were unwilling to risk losing him. He’s now back in the fold through the 2020 season.
