Chargers safety Adderley retires


Nasir Adderley, a 2019 second-round pick who started the last three seasons for the Chargers, announced his retirement Thursday on social media.

The 25-year-old safety became an unrestrict­ed free agent Wednesday.

Writing that he was “finally going to put myself first for once,” Adderley mentioned his health and a desire to spend more time with loved ones as motivation.

“I believe I have yet to scratch the surface of the player I could be,” he wrote, “but if it’s at the expense of my peace of mind then it’s no longer for me.”
