The Los Angeles Chargers and Green Bay Packers are getting set for the Week 11 clash at Lambeau Field. The Packers (3-6) are looking for as many positives to take into next year as their playoff chances are on life support. The Chargers (4-5) are still in the mix for a wild card spot in the AFC and are desperate to get back in the win column.
To do that, the Chargers have signed a former Packers defensive player that was with the team just a few weeks ago.
The Los Angeles Chargers Sign Former Green Bay Packers Linebacker Justin Hollins
In preparation for their matchup with the Packers on Sunday, the Los Angeles Chargers signed former Packers outside linebacker Justin Hollins off the practice squad of the New York Giants.
Hollins joined Green Bay last season after being claimed off waivers. Upon returning from training camp in 2023, he was named to the 53-man roster and played in four games before being released. The Giants signed him to their practice squad on October 24. Hollins won the Super Bowl with the Los Angeles Rams in 2021.
Is Matt LaFleur concerned Hollins will provide the Chargers with valuable intel on the Packers offensively or defensively?
“I don’t know,” coach Matt LaFleur said Wednesday. “I’m sure they could get something out of it. I think more than anything, they are getting a really good football player. I have a lot of respect for Justin Hollins. They added another piece to a good pass-rush already.”
While the signing may not have a huge impact on the game, it was certainly an interesting move by the Chargers who are in desperation mode to start stringing together a few wins.
