Good news for Richard Goodman, Mike Willie and Micheal Spurlock. Spurlock looks like a lock to make the roster, but Goodman is right on the bubble with other receivers performing well in camp.

Here is the list of players that were released today by the Chargers:

WR Jason BarnesWR Taylor EmbreeWR Phillip PayneDT Eddie BrownLS Nick GuessRB Michael HayesTE Brad TaylorOT Phil Trautwein.

The Chargers reached injury settlements with a few players:DT Garrett Brown (waived)OT Michael Toudouze (outright terminated)

Johnnie Troutman was placed on the “Reserve-Non-Football Injury” list and Brandyn Dombrowski was placed on the “Reserve-Non-Football Illness” list.

It doesn’t look like there were any big surprises with the cuts. Taylor Embree is a player that did well, but didn’t fit the numbers game. Mike Willie is still hanging around.
