It is cut day around the NFL. The Chargers have to trim the roster to 53 players by 6pm tonight. We should start hearing some rumblings much sooner than that and Bolt Beat will be keeping an eye on the situation. We will update you on this post when we start hearing things happen.
And the names are starting to leak out. Here are the first couple of players that were released:
LT Anthony Davis
LT Mario Henderson
DE Jacques Cesaire – that is definitely one of the toughest cuts. Could mean that Aubrayo Franklin made the roster.
LB Bront Bird
C Colin Baxter
FB Jacob Hester
It’s official. Jacques Cesaire has been released.Even though we knew it was coming, it is a sad day. An era has ended.

If Chargers have veteran backup tackle in 2012, he’ll have to be acquired. Team has released Anthony Davis, Mario Henderson, sources said.
