Kyle Van Noy’s visit with the Chargers went well.

Word that the veteran linebacker was visiting the AFC West club came on Thursday morning and that a deal was expected to fall into place. The Chargers announced Van Noy’s signing without disclosing any terms on Thursday afternoon.

Van Noy is the second veteran defender to join the Chargers in as many days. They added cornerback Bryce Callahan to the secondary on Wednesday.

Van Noy returned to the Patriots last year after spending the 2020 season with the Dolphins. He had 66 tackles, five sacks, an interception he returned for a touchdown, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery.

He’s seen time on the edge and as an off-ball linebacker over the years and the team will now figure out the best way to fit him into their front seven.

  1. Bolts are not joking when they said they wanted to make sure their defense is set. Van Noy can rotate in with K9.

  2. Right now they’re the LA Clippers of football. They’ve got work to do to change that.

  3. OL and D still an issue. Cap hell has also arrived with the Mack move and JC Jackson overpayments.

  4. Van Noy is a decent player. But while in Miami he got swept up against the run.

  5. He looked good when healthy but those performances were too far in between and he couldn’t be counted on,Thanks for the championship memories and good luck with the chargers.
