The Los Angeles Chargers and defensive lineman Corey Liuget have agreed to a revised deal, according to a report from NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. The details of the revision have yet to be announced.
The #Chargers and DL Corey Liuget have agreed to terms on a revised contract to keep him in Los Angeles for another season, source said. He was set to make $8M in 2018 and his status had been up in the air.

Starving for cap space, the revision/restructuring of Liuget’s contract seemed like a given. When it was announced that Liuget would be suspended from the first four games of the 2018 regular season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy, it was too easy to predict.
Liuget has been an important part of the Chargers’ defensive line since being drafted in the first round out of Illinois in 2011.
Entering his eighth season in the NFL, the 28-year-old has amassed 260 total tackles, 22.5 sacks, 20 passes defensed and six forced fumbles.
The Bolts have been rumored to be heavily interested in bolstering their defensive line unit via this year’s draft.
Thanks a lot for reading.
