SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Chargers announced that the team released 11 players in an effort to reach the limit of 75 players on the roster by the NFL’s Tuesday deadline. The Chargers currently have 79 players on the team’s active roster.
Most significant move: Central Michigan’s Titus Davis was a productive receiver in college. And at 6-foot-1 and 200 pounds, Titus fit San Diego’s profile for a bigger receiver. However, Davis was inconsistent catching the ball, and at times had trouble dealing with the more physical nature of the NFL. Davis was outplayed by fellow undrafted rookie free agent receiver Tyrell Williams.
Paulson moves on: University of Oregon product David Paulson spent most of last season on the practice squad for San Diego. Selected in the seventh round of the 2012 draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers, the 6-foot-4, 246-pound Paulson is more of a pass-catching tight end. He was passed over by bigger options at his position like Kyle Miller and Brian Parker.
What’s next: The Chargers have to make four additional moves by Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET to reach the 75 player roster limit.
Chargers’ cuts: CB Manny Asprilla, DL Cameron Botticelli, WR Titus Davis, RB Jahwan Edwards, LB Curtis Grant, OLB Brock Hekking (injured), OT Forrestal Hickman, TE David Paulson, QB Chase Rettig, DL Luther Robinson and TE Logan Stokes.
