Chargers Release OT Kevin Haslam


The San Diego Chargers released offensive tackle Kevin Haslam today. Haslam made 3 starts for the Chargers last season at left tackle trying to fill the void for Jared Gaither.

There goes one of the candidates that was going to give King Dunlap a little bit of a push. Not sure the reasoning behind releasing Haslam at this time. He saves the team $555k on the salary cap, if that was anyone’s concern.

Now the competition for the left tackle position is between King Dunlap, Mike Harris and Nick Becton. We need more competition at the position.

            Not even close… you would need AT LEAST a couple of Dodo Birds, and a snake from Medusa’s head for that kind of deal.

  • tubbs45

    They could they bring in Winston and/or Moore at RT/RG and cut Clary and Royal…

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    Interesting move. Hmmmmmm. $555K, huh? That’s enough to sign a depth player in another area, I guess. It’s like a poor man’s version of Vincent Jackson’s contract. All 5′s.. lol.

  • MC Boltman

    *head scratch*….$555K… *head scratch* … (damn that already hurts).

  • MC Boltman

    Max Starks is a Charger – look at his twitter avi

  • Olu Amure

    Ask and you shall receive ;) .. they know what they are doing

  • Mark Viguri

    He’s being released so he has enough time to catch on with another team. Also Haslam isn’t as good as Michael Harris.
