Former Delaware safety Nasir Adderley recorded a team-high eight tackles for the Los Angeles Chargers last Sunday, highlighting the group of CAA Football players competing during Week 10 of the NFL season.
Adderley’s eight stops came in a 29-21 setback to the Miami Dolphins. For the season, he ranks second on the team with 37 tackles and has one interception, which is tied for the team lead.
Two other Blue Hens’ alums had strong games on the defensive line. Defensive tackle Zach Kerr of the Carolina Panthers contributed five tackles, a tackle for loss and two quarterback hurries, while nose tackle Bilal Nichols of the Chicago Bears had four tackles and a quarterback hurry.
Three former CAA Football players earned starts during Week 10. In addition to Adderley and Nichols, Delaware tight end Nick Boyle made one catch for four yards for the Baltimore Ravens before suffering a knee injury.
Congratulations to former James Madison defensive end Ron’Dell Carter, who was picked up by the Dallas Cowboys last week after being released by the Indianapolis Colts, and former Rhode Island offensive tackle Kyle Murphy, who was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster of the New York Giants.
