You can check off the eighth option on my list of what to watch for at training camp, as the San Diego Chargers officially released center Trevor Robinson.

According to Pro Football Focus, Robinson was the lowest-graded lineman in the league last season. Meanwhile, the Chargers added guard-tackle Marcel Jones. The 6-foot-7, 320-pounder spent the last two seasons on the Baltimore Ravens’ practice squad.
In bigger news, 2016 first-round pick Joey Bosa will not report to camp on Friday, per NFL Media reporter Steve Wyche. Earlier this week, general manager Tom Telesco said that he wasn’t sure whether or not Bosa would participate due to an ongoing contract dispute.
“It really just comes down to generally this–there’s some things that are negotiable, and money always is negotiable, obviously–but there’s certain things in contracts language-wise, whether you’re picked third, 33rd or 203rd, there’s certain things of consistency and doing things the same way for everyone on the team,” Telesco said, via ESPN.com.
The Chargers need to get him on the field as soon as possible, so hopefully things will change by the end of the day.
