Los Angeles Chargers re-sign wide receiver Artavis Scott to a one-year deal

Artavis Scott, Chargers

The Los Angeles Chargers have announced that they’ve re-signed wide receiver Artavis Scott to a one-year deal, according to a new report.

According to SB Nation, this deal will keep Scott with the team through the 2019 season.

“Scott was one of the more consistent performers week-to-week which led to a ton of praise from the coaching staff. Unfortunately for Scott, the young wideout sustained an ankle injury prior to the regular season that kept him on the IR for the entire year. During the 2018 preseason, Scott hauled in eight catches for 82 yards and carried the ball once for another four yards. During his three years at Clemson (2014-2016), Scott caught 245 passes for 2,480 yards and 19 touchdowns. He also held return duties where he held a 23.7-yard average on 39 kick returns.”

Artavis Scott, who graduated from Clemson, has only been on the team for a year, but he recently told the team’s official site that he was looking forward to continuing to grow with them.

He was also commended, extensively, for taking his college experience to the pro field and having the success translate well.

“Finished as Clemson’s career leader with 245 receptions, which also ranks fifth in Atlantic Coast Conference history. Posted 2,458 career receiving yards (10.0 avg.). Ended his career ranked fifth in school annals with 19 TD catches. Caught a pass in all but one of his 43 career games played, ending his Tigers career with a record-setting streak of 38-straight games with a reception. Earned All-ACC in all three seasons (second-team as a junior and freshman, first-team as a sophomore). Named first-team Freshman All-American by USA Today.”
