Chargers: What the team is getting out of new linebacker Nick Vigil

The Los Angeles Chargers needed more linebacker depth after releasing Thomas Davis Sr. and got that in Nick Vigil, who signed a one-year contract with the Bolts.

When Nick Vigil was taken in the third round by the Bengals in 2016 it was considered a bit of a reach by his former team. Many scouts viewed him as a day-three player. He dominated the Mountain West during his career at Utah State where he racked up over 250 tackles and 30 tackles for loss in two seasons as a starter there.

However, coming out of college he was considered as a future special teams role player due to his lack of size and natural athleticism.
