Report: Troy Dye reunites with Justin Herbert in Los Angeles

Sales of Los Angeles Charger jerseys are going to receive an uptick in Oregon.

Not only does former quarterback Justin Herbert lead the Chargers offense, but now former Oregon linebacker Troy Dye signed with Los Angeles as a free agent.

The Norco, Calif. native played out his initial four-year contract with Minnesota where he played in 60 games. But playing time with the Vikings was going to be diminished some, so Dye hit the market and his now going back to his home state.

He signed a one-year deal, but should have a good chance at being a starter for the Super Bowl hopefuls. Linebacker Kenneth Murray Jr. signed a two-year contract with the Tennessee Titans and his backup, Amen Ogbongbemiga, signed with the Chicago Bears.

In his four seasons up in Minnesota, Dye had 80 tackles, 44 solo, and 1 forced fumble. Dye started eight games.
