While four teams are still fighting for a chance to raise the Lombardi Trophy, 28 other squads are looking to get any kind of jump on the 2020 season as possible and that includes scouring the list of available free agents.
Many teams will carry over the players that were on their practice squad at season’s end by signing them to a futures contract. Rosters balloon back up to 90 players during the offseason so there is no limit to how many players can be signed to a futures contract.
Following the season, the Chargers chose to sign these eight players:
Authentic Cole Toner Jersey, OL: Toner has been in the Chargers’ organization for the past three seasons and has appeared in several preseason games while also spending time on the team’s practice squad. He has played in three regular-season games across his career, which includes time as a member of the Arizona Cardinals, Cincinnati Bengals and New England Patriots.

Authentic Tyree St.Louis Jersey, OL: St. Louis spent time in 2019 with the Chargers on the team’s practice squad. The team saw enough in him to bring him back as part of next season’s 90-man roster.
Authentic Quenton Meeks Jersey, CB: Meeks spent the first season of his career with the Jacksonville Jaguars and even made one start for the team in 2018, registering eight tackles and two pass deflections in that game. After the Jags waived him in 2019, the Chargers picked him up on waivers and will look to help continue his development.
