Chargers re-sign S Darrell Stuckey

In another move to retain a core player, the San Diego Chargers announced the team agreed to terms on a multi-year deal with veteran safety Darrell Stuckey on Saturday.

Stuckey confirmed via Twitter that his new contract is a four-year deal.

A special teams captain last season, Stuckey is considered a valuable, core special teams player for the Chargers. A fourth-round selection by San Diego in the 2010 draft out of Kansas, Stuckey finished tied for third in special teams tackles with 10.

Stuckey, 26, also played in 89 defensive snaps during the regular season, finishing with 21 tackles and a pass deflection.

The Chargers re-signed middle linebacker Donald Butler to a multi-year deal last week, the team’s first move in free agency.
