Los Angeles Chargers’ Addae looks to turn things around

For all the struggles the Chargers experienced in the first half of the season with transitioning Jahleel Addae to free safety, he turned in his best performance of the season in Sunday’s 25-17 win over the Seahawks.

The stats backed it up with ten tackles (three solo), which was tied for second most on the team, a sack and a pass defensed which came at the perfect time.

In the play, Addae saw quarterback Russell Wilson’s pass coming in his direction. He didn’t see wide receiver David Moore running open behind him in the back of the end zone, and as the pass came his direction, Addae reached out his right arm as far as he could to get a finger on it to make it fall incomplete.

Los Angeles selected Derwin James in the first-round to play the position he’s most suited for, which is strong safety. It’s safe to say that the transition to free safety for Addae in the first half of his 2018 campaign was a dud that was filled with missed tackles and lack of range for the position.

It might be too early to say Addae’s breakout performance came against the Seahawks, who prefer to move the ball on the ground as opposed to taking shots to deep part of the field. Nonetheless, it still served as an encouraging sign for a player that is looking to get adapted to the position he didn’t play all of last season.
