05 Sep Chargers Claim Hayes Pullard; Waive Nick Dzubnar
The Los Angeles Chargers added a new linebacker into the mix on Monday, claiming Hayes Pullard off waivers from the Jacksonville Jaguars. He’s the third player added to the active roster off waivers in the past two days, joining G Michael Schofield and CB Jeff Richards.
Pullard is a 6-0, 235-pound linebacker entering his third year in the NFL. He totaled 33 tackles in 24 games during his tenure in Jacksonville, where he played under current Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley. The Los Angeles native and USC product entered the league as a seventh-round selection (219th overall) of the Cleveland Browns in the 2015 NFL Draft.
To make room, the Chargers waived Nick Dzubnar. The linebacker initially joined the Bolts as an undrafted free agent in 2015, leading the team that year in special teams tackles.
