Second surprise is that Tyrell Williams made the roster. He has the size and speed to be a great receiver. I like that the Chargers put him on the roster to develop him. This year he will be a big help on special teams. He played well there during the preseason.
Third surprise is Josh Lambo. I like the move. Go with the young guy. Its hard to see a vet like Novak go, but someone will probably pick him up.
The first big question is who will get cut when Gates returns to the roster after the 4th game? I certainly hope it is Donald Brown. TT admit that this was a mistake. Release the man and get us some cap space.
Second big question is who is Tyreek Burwell. I honestly didn’t even know he was on the squad. The internet can’t even find stats for the guy. Welcome aboard big fella!

The biggest surprise is that Donald Brown is still on this roster. I have no idea how that happens, especially while Javontee Herndon was asked to clean out his locker.
