Quarterback Ryan Lindley got his first shot in the NFL when Ken Whisenhunt was the head coach of the Cardinals in 2012.
Lindley’s second shot will come with the team Whisenhunt worked for last season. The Chargers have signed Lindley and eight others to their practice squad.
Lindley will see a familiar face at San Diego’s practices in offensive coordinator Frank Reich, who was an assistant under Whisenhunt during Lindley’s rookie season. He also brings a summer’s worth of insight into the Arizona offense, something that could come in handy for the Chargers as they prepare to open their season against Lindley’s old team.
Wide receiver Javontee Herndon, outside linebacker Cordarro Law, guard/tackle Jeremiah Sirles, wide receiver Torrence Allen, guard Craig Watts, defensive end Chas Alecxih, cornerback Greg Ducre and safety Adrian Phillips were also added to the practice squad. All eight were with the Chargers during training camp.
