Flacco spent the 2013 college season at Division II New Haven where he earned third-team All-American honors after catching 30 passes for 591 yards and nine touchdowns as a tight end.  

The Chargers also signed cornerback Chris Davis. If that name doesn't sound familiar to you, you might remember him as the guy who did this at the end of the Alabama-Auburn game back in November.
