The Los Angeles Chargers have re-signed former Clemson receiver Artavis Scott, per an ESPN report.

Scott agreed to a reserve/future deal last year and had impressed in preseason action before suffering an ankle injury before the season started, prompting a stint on the injured reserve.

Chargers GM Tom Telesco said after the injury that Scott had earned a spot on the roster.

"He had earned a spot on this team and had done a great job,” Telesco told reporters. “After this training camp, we know he can play."

Scott left Clemson as the career leader in receptions (245) with 2,458 receiving yards and 19 touchdowns over 43 games (36 starts). He caught a pass in 42 of his 43 games of action finished on a 38-game streak with a catch.

Scott is teammates with another former Tigers receiver in Mike Williams.
