Professional career[edit]

2013 Season[edit]

Addae went undrafted and was eventually picked up by the San Diego Chargers. He impressed the Chargers coaching staff enough to make the 53-man roster. Addae became the team's nickel and dime safety as he became more involved due to injuries suffered by safety Brandon Taylor. Addae played all 16 games, making 2 starts, managing to collect 38 tackles, 1 sack, and a pass deflection.

2014 Season[edit]

During the offseason, Addae competed for the starting Strong Safety position. Then, during the Chargers preseason, Addae suffered a hamstring injury. He returned during the regular season against the Jaguars. Against the Patriots, Addae forced a fumble in which it was recovered by the Charger Darrell Stuckey and taken for a touchdown. For the 2014 season, Jahleel Addae collected 48 tackles, 2 forced fumbles, and 1 sack.
