Chargers sign WR Maurice Ffrench to practice squad

·1 min read

The Chargers signed wide receiver Maurice Ffrench to the practice squad on Wednesday.

Ffrench takes the spot left by WR Joe Reed, who was placed on the injured list.

After going undrafted out of the University of Pittsburgh in 2020, Ffrench signed a rookie contract with the Chiefs and was added to their practice squad.

Following the season, Ffrench signed a reserve/future contract. After the preseason, he was added to the practice squad but ended up being released.

Ffrench never appeared in a regular season game.

Ffrench finished his collegiate career with 156 catches for 1,637 yards and 14 touchdowns in 45 games, while tallying over 600 yards and two touchdowns between punt and kick returns.

He reunites with wide receivers coach Chris Beatty, who held the same position at Pittsburgh during the 2019 season.

The team may look to elevate him to the active roster and give him a shot as a return specialist.
