  • Cortez Broughton: Sent to waivers

    The Chargers waived Broughton on Tuesday, Gavino Borquez of ChargersWire.com reports.

    Broughton appeared in 11 games for the Chargers during his first two seasons in the NFL. He will have to look for a new opportunity in 2021 as Los Angeles elected to keep newcomer Christian Covington as the primary backup to Linval Joseph on their initial 53-man roster.

  • Chargers' Cortez Broughton: Headed to LA

    The Chargers selected Broughton in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 242nd overall.

    Broughton (6-foot-2, 293 pounds) wasn't invited to the combine but was a good player for Cincinnati, where he started three years and helped anchor a strong run defense in 2018, when he finished with 5.5 sacks and 16.5 tackles for loss. He's probably more of a gap shooter than a run stopper at that weight, but a guy like him can help a nickel pass rush with his 4.98-second 40 and 33.5-inch vertical.
