Attaochu was a member of the Yellow Jackets from 2010-13, where he set Georgia Tech’s all-time mark in sacks with 31.5. He was drafted by the Los Angeles Chargers in the second round of the 2014 NFL draft.
The 6-foot-3, 252-pound pass rusher appeared in 38 games for the Chargers. Despite missing eight games in 2016 due to a high ankle sprain and broken foot, he recorded a career-high five sacks. A hamstring strain at the beginning of the 2017 season caused him to lose his starting spot.
