Chargers re-signed ILB Korey Toomer to a one-year, $1.797 million contract.
It's the value of Toomer's low tender as an RFA. Signed off the Raiders' practice squad in September, Toomer made eight starts and played 479 snaps for the Bolts, receiving really strong run-defense marks from Pro Football Focus. He gave the Chargers much-needed athleticism inside. Wed, Apr 5, 2017 12:48:00 PM

Chargers signed ILB Korey Toomer from the Raiders' practice squad.

He takes Manti Te'o's roster spot after Te'o tore his Achilles' last Sunday. Toomer has 18 games of experience and will likely pitch in on special teams.

Rams promoted LB Korey Toomer from the practice squad.

A third-year fifth rounder, Toomer appeared in one game for the Cowboys this season. Toomer has freakish athleticism, but has never been able to translate it to Sundays.

Cowboys signed LB Korey Toomer, formerly of the Seahawks.

Toomer is a freakish athlete, but simply couldn't stay healthy at Seahawks camp. He's definitely worth a flier for the linebacker-needy Cowboys.

One week after calling third-year LB Korey Toomer the "hottest guy in camp," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll stated Monday that Toomer is "the brightest guy in the whole camp."

A 2012 fifth-round pick from Idaho, Toomer has yet to play an NFL down but could enter the mix to start at strong-side linebacker if Bruce Irvin's hip surgery shelves him into the season. Seattle's alternative would be to move WLB K.J. Wright to Sam, and start Malcolm Smith at weak side. Toomer weighed 6'2/234 at his 2012 Pro Day. He blazed a 4.53 forty with a Shazierian 42-inch vertical.

Seahawks signed LB Korey Toomer, WRs Phil Bates and Bryan Walters, CB Ron Parker, RB Derrick Coleman, DB Chandler Fenner, TE Cooper Helfet, LB Kyle Knox, and DT Myles Wade to reserve/future contracts.

Toomer is the most notable name after he was a fifth-round selection by Seattle in the 2012 draft out of Idaho. He was a workout specimen at his Pro Day, running a 4.53 forty and posting a 42-inch vertical. Parker bounced between the Panthers and Seahawks for much of the season. These nine guys will try to make the team out of camp this summer.

Seahawks selected Idaho LB Korey Toomer with the No. 154 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

A Pro Day warrior, Toomer ran a 4.53 forty and posted a 42-inch vertical leap while impressing in positional drills. He offered plenty of versatility as a senior while playing linebacker, defensive end, and even fullback which earned him second-team all-conference honors. Toomer missed his entire junior season due to injury and is a project for the Seahawks that will likely start his career on special teams.
