NFL: CB Strickland agrees to 2-year deal with Bolts
SAN DIEGO — The Chargers have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with free agent cornerback Donald Strickland.
Strickland started two of the 11 games in which he played for the New York Jets last season, but was plagued by injuries. He dealt with a lingering quadriceps injury, a concussion and a broken pinkie during the season, and suffered a groin injury in the AFC championship game at Indianapolis.
He finished the season with two sacks, four passes defensed and three tackles for loss. Strickland has also played with Indianapolis, Philadelphia and San Francisco.
The deal for Strickland on Friday comes eight days after the Chargers dealt cornerback Antonio Cromartie to the Jets.
