According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter the San Diego Chargers have acquired former New Orleans Saints cornerback Johnny Patrick off waivers.
Johnny Patrick was the New Orleans Saints 2011 3rd round draft pick out of the University of Louisville. During his tenure with the New Orleans Saints Patrick saw little time with the team only playing in 5 games for the team. Patrick made a total of 31 tackles in 5 games for the Saints in 2012.
It is still up in the air on why the Saints decided to part ways with Patrick who is only 24 years old and has a bright NFL career ahead of him with the San Diego Chargers. Looking ahead into the 2013 NFL Season Patrick will be entering Training Camp competing for a job on Special Teams.
