Kris Dielman is considering coming back out of retirement (Kevin Acee). The Chargers released him today, so if he were to come back, he would be a free agent and available for any team to sign.

Dielman is a STUD, but a return to the NFL is a huge gamble. He had a scary incident last season with a concussion and a seizure on the flight home.

If Dielman is healthy and returns to the Chargers, he could be a force on our offensive line. He is one of the best in the business and he has got the itch to play football.

Why would the Chargers release him off the roster? Could that mean that this rumor is actually true? Dielman’s current contract would probably put the team over the cap and the team would have to rework a deal with him if he wants to stay wearing lightning bolts.  If he just stayed retired, there wouldn’t be any reason to release him off the roster.

UPDATE…. nevermind:

Kris Dielman will not play again. Un-retiring was a technicality. It appears there will be legal action related to end of his career.
