Chargers announced undrafted free agent signings
The Chargers drafted eight players over the seven rounds of this year’s draft and they expanded their rookie class to 27 players by announcing they’ve reached agreement with 19 undrafted free agents.
Among the group is quarterback Mike Bercovici, who threw for 5,299 yards at Arizona State over the last two seasons. Kellen Clemens is the backup for Philip Rivers, which will likely leave Bercovici to battle with Bryn Renner for a developmental spot at the back of the depth chart or on the practice squad.
The Chargers also added a pair of teammates from Houston -- running back Kenneth Farrow and safety Adrian McDonald -- and a pair from West Virginia -- cornerback Terrell Chestnut and linebacker Shaq Petteway -- as they look for an undrafted player who can make their roster. The Chargers have had at least one in each of the last 18 seasons.
Jacksonville State linebacker Chris Landrum, Georgia Tech linebacker Tyler Marcordes, Oregon State cornerback Larry Scott, Penn State cornerback Trevor Williams, Duke defensive end Carlos Wray, Marshall guard Sebastian Johansson, Oregon tackle Tyler Johnstone, Montana wide receiver Jamaal Jones, Ohio guard Mike McQueen, Colorado Mesa tackle Zeth Ramsay, Marshall wide receiver Deandre Reaves, Vanderbilt center Spencer Pulley, Navy running back Chris Swain and Washington State wide receiver Dominique Williams round out the group.
UPDATE 12:46 p.m. ET: The Chargers announced Georgia tight end Jay Rome was part of the group as well, which conflicted with the Steelers announcing that Rome was part of their own crop of undrafted additions. Rome says he’s a Steeler, so we’ve removed him from the Chargers’ list.
