Former Kansas Jayhawks Safety Darrell Stuckey Could Be Starting With The Chargers

New, 6 comments

Here's a bit of a surprise:

↵

The Chargers drafted Darrell Stuckey in the fourth round presumably to begin his career as a backup to safety Kevin Ellison.

↵

Ellison, who was arrested over the offseason, ran with the first team during OTAs but the Chargers ended up releasing him in this week.

↵

Enter Darrell Stuckey.

↵

As it stands now, Stuckey appears to be heading for the starting job in San Diego. This would be a bit of a surprise. I imagine Ellison's arrest had something to do with him being released but I also think the Chargers wouldn't have done it unless they felt they had someone (like Stuckey) to step into that role.
