Today is the sixth day of the Chargers Wire’s countdown to the Los Angeles Chargers’ training camp that begins on July 29. Each day we will count down the best Charger to wear each jersey number from No. 30 to No. 1. Today we take a look at No. 25.
Currently, Chargers safety Darrell Stuckey wears the No. 25 for Los Angeles, but it is another safety who earns the honor of being the best No. 25 in the Chargers’ history, former Chargers safety Venice Glenn.
Glenn played five seasons and started 65 games for San Diego. During those five years, he hauled in 12 interceptions returning one for a touchdown, recovered six fumbles and had 311 tackles.
Sadly, the former NFL safety never made it to the playoffs with the Chargers but was a bright spot of those poor teams.
Ultimately, Glenn was not an all-time great player, but he was a solid player to grace the Bolt’s uniform. Without a ton of competition, Glenn had an easy path to becoming the greatest in Chargers’ history to wear the No. 25.
