One Horned Frog’s loss is a Nittany Lion’s gain.
Less than a week after losing Pro Bowl CB Jason Verrett for the season to a partially torn ACL, the San Diego Chargers on Friday announced the signing of rookie Trevor Williams to their active roster.
Williams, who went undrafted after finishing his career at Penn State, had been on the Chargers practice squad. He becomes the 29th former Penn State player currently on an active NFL roster.
We've signed CB Trevor Williams, placed Jason Verrett on IR & added Ryan Carrethers to practice squad.

The 5-foot-11, 191-pound Williams was a two-time All-Big Ten honorable mention selection with the Nittany Lions, appearing in 33 games as a cornerback after starting his college career at receiver. He made 84 career tackles and five interceptions.
Verrett, a first-round pick in the 2014 draft after a standout career at TCU, had 13 tackles and 1 interception this season.
