  • Browns' Isaac Rochell: Finds new home

    Rochell signed a contract with the Browns on Wednesday, Chris Krispinsky of WKBN reports. Rochell spent last season with the Colts, after spending the previous four seasons with the Chargers. A 2017 seventh-round selection, Rochell was less involved with the Colts then he was with the Chargers, seeing a four-year low in games played, snaps and sacks. The 26-year-old will likely fill a depth role on the Browns defensive line this season.

  • Colts' Isaac Rochell: Full participant Wednesday

    Rochell (illness) was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

  • Colts' Isaac Rochell: Heads to Indianapolis

    Rochell is signing a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Colts, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Rochell was a solid rotational player with the Chargers over the last four seasons, and he'll now bring his talents to Indianapolis. Unless he's able to carve out a larger role with his new team, though, he'll remain off the fantasy radar in most IDP leagues.

  • Isaac Rochell: No tender from Chargers

    Rochell won't be tendered by the Chargers, making him an unrestricted free agent, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. This move is a bit surprising after Rochell started six games for the Chargers last season, though his 29 tackles and 2.5 sacks in 16 games overall were hardly irreplaceable production. The 2017 seventh-round pick shouldn't have trouble finding a suitor in free agency, though he likely is ticketed for a backup role wherever he lands.

  • Chargers' Isaac Rochell: Earns 1.5 sacks Sunday

    Rochell accumulated two tackles and 1.5 sacks during Sunday's 20-6 win over the Raiders. With Joey Bosa (foot) sidelined, Rochell has managed to rack up 4.5 sacks as his replacement. Bosa is expected to return at some point in the coming weeks, and that could drastically cut into Rochell's playing time.

  • Chargers' Isaac Rochell: Opportunities likely in Bosa's absence

    Rochell should be in line for an increased role with Joey Bosa (foot) ruled out for Sunday's game at Buffalo, Jack Wang of The Orange County Register reports. Rochell earned the start in the season opener, recording four tackles (two solo) while playing 51 of 56 defensive snaps. Coach Anthony Lynn said Bosa will "probably be gone for the next couple weeks," keeping the window open for Rochell. It looks as though the 23-year-old will continue to play a heavy role in the Chargers' defensive line rotation while Bosa is sidelined.
