Addae has agreed to re-sign with the Chargers on a four year deal, ESPN's Field Yates reported on Wednesday. An undrafted free agent in 2013, Addae has developed into a serviceable starting safety, recording at least 50 tackles in each of the last two seasons. Known as one of the hardest-hitting safeties in the league, Addae's aggressive nature has landed him on the injury report in each of the last three seasons, causing him to miss 16 of the 48 games over that stretch,. When healthy, Addae has been a serviceable IDP option, but his injury history and relative lack of turnover-inducing plays (one career interception) likely keeps him from being a must-own in standard IDP formats.
Addae finished the year with 50 tackles and an interception which was returned for a touchdown. Despite missing eight of the first 10 games of the year thanks to a broken collarbone, Addae ended his season on a high note, returning an interception for a touchdown in the Week 17 loss to the Chiefs. Should the 26-year-old make it through an entire season healthy, something he hasn't done since 2013, he would likely post numbers similar to the upper echelon safeties, but until he proves his durability, Addae shouldn't be considered an option in anything but deep IDP leagues.
Addae tallied eight tackles in Sunday's loss to the Raiders. Addae has made a name for himself since returning from a collarbone injury in Week 12, totaling 32 tackles in the last four weeks. In what's expected to be a gritty game against the Browns next week, Addae figures to be an attractive option for IDP owners.
Addae (collarbone) is expected to start Sunday against the Texans, Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. After fracturing his collarbone in Week 2 and missing the subsequent eight games, Addae appears to be ready to take the field Sunday. Adrian Phillips and Dexter McCoil, who each took turns in the strong safety role following Addae's injury, will likely transition to more of a special teams role with the Chargers.
Addae (collarbone) has been ruled out for Week 10. Addae has been out since Week 2 with a broken collarbone, and it looks like it is going to be at least one more week before he is able to return to game action. Look for Adrian Phillips to get the start at strong safety with Addae out.
