Chargers sign a former Packer ahead of Week 11 matchup

Chargers' New Addition: The Los Angeles Chargers recently added outside linebacker Justin Hollins to their team, setting the stage for an interesting matchup against the Green Bay Packers.

Hollins' Recent History: Hollins, previously part of the New York Giants' practice squad, made his debut for the Giants in Week 10 after signing with them a few weeks prior. 

Potential Insider Knowledge: Questions arise about whether Hollins might provide insights into the Packers' defensive strategies. 

Staley's Background: Staley, now coaching the Chargers, was the defensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams in 2020, where Packers defensive coordinator Joe Barry also coached.

Chargers' Pass-Rushing Unit: Hollins joins a strong pass-rushing group that includes top players like Joey Bosa and Khalil Mack.

Special Teams Role: In his recent game with the Giants, Hollins played all his snaps on special teams. If he faces the Packers, he may primarily play in this role.

Performance with the Packers: During his time with the Green Bay Packers, Hollins made an impact with 2.5 sacks, three tackles for losses, and four hits on the quarterback in 10 games.

Familiarity with Coach Staley: Hollins is well-acquainted with Coach Staley's playbook, having played for him in 2019 in Denver and 2020 in Los Angeles.
