  • Seahawks' Uchenna Nwosu: Lands two-year deal

    Nwosu agreed Wednesday with the Seahawks on a two-year, $20 million contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Nwosu appeared in all 17 games for the Chargers in 2021, recording 40 tackles (24 solo), five sacks, an interception, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. The 25-year-old should have a chance to carve out a significant role in Seattle's defense in 2022.

  • Chargers' Uchenna Nwosu: Caps off excellent season

    Nwosu finished his breakout 2021 campaign with 40 tackles (24 solo), five sacks, four passes defended, two forced fumbles and one interception.

    It took until Year 4 for the 2018 second-round pick to finally emerge as a full-time starter, and while Nwosu didn't put up gaudy numbers opposite Joey Bosa, the USC product was clearly a difference maker defensively. The 25-year-old will become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but given the obvious favor of head coach Brandon Staley and the Chargers' second-most cap space, expect to see the pass-rushing linebacker get a significant extension at some point this offseason.

  • Chargers' Uchenna Nwosu: Two sacks in win

    Nwosu tallied two tackles (two solo) along with two sacks and a forced fumble in the 41-22 win over the Bengals on Sunday.

    Nwosu recorded two of the Chargers six total sacks, increasing his season sack total to four. In addition, the young linebacker also forced and then recovered a fumble early in the first quarter, setting the tone for the remainder of the game. After recording his second forced fumble of the season, the 24-year-old gets an easier matchup against the Giants next Sunday.

  • Chargers' Uchenna Nwosu: Goes to injured reserve

    Nwosu (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

    The 23-year-old Nwosu suited up 13 times for the Chargers in 2020, establishing new career highs in tackles (33), QB hits (11), sacks (4.5) and pass deflections (two) during his third pro campaign out of USC. He had already been confirmed out for Week 16. Now, Nwosu's season comes to an end given his IR designation, combined with the fact that Los Angeles has been eliminated from playoff contention.

  • Chargers' Uchenna Nwosu: Sidelined for Week 16

    Nwosu (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Broncos.

    Nwosu was absent from the practice field all week, and he'll miss his second game of the season as a result. Through 13 games, Nwosu has recorded career highs in tackles (33) and sacks (4.5). Isaac Rochell is expected to start at defensive end in Nwosu's place Sunday.
