SALT LAKE CITY – Former BYU and current free agent linebacker Kyle Van Noy plans to meet with the Los Angeles Chargers, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

The NFL insider reported the meeting on Thursday, May 5.

“Source: #Patriots veteran free agent LB Kyle Van Noy is meeting with the #Chargers,” Rapoport tweeted. “If all goes well, there is a good chance he signs. A potential important addition to Brandon Staley’s defense.”

Van Noy has been a free agent since May 7, when he was released by the New England Patriots.

Two hours before Rapoport’s tweet, Van Noy posted three sets of eyeball emojis on his Twitter.

Last season, the Chargers posted a 9-8 record and narrowly missed the playoffs.

About Kyle Van Noy

Prior to his time in the league, Van Noy played at BYU from 2o10-13.

After a standout career at BYU, Van Noy was drafted by the Detroit Lions in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Following two and a half seasons with Detroit, the linebacker was traded to New England.

Van Noy played the next three and a half seasons with the Patriots and helped New England win a pair of Super Bowls.

After the 2019 season, the linebacker signed with the Miami Dolphins.

The Dolphins released Van Noy after one season in South Beach and he returned to New England on a two-year deal.

The 2021 season was the lone year of Van Noy’s second stint with the Patriots.

In 111 career games, the two-time Super Bowl champ has recorded 424 total tackles, 288 solo tackles, 28.5 sacks, nine forced fumbles, seven fumble recoveries, three interceptions, and one touchdown.
