Stock up: Sean Culkin

It’s hard to say that any of the Chargers’ tight ends have an arrow pointing up in the stock department, but they have to keep at least a couple of them, right?

Along with Virgil Green, the other tight end to make the roster will be Sean Culkin. Though he hasn’t done much, Culkin has at least shown to be capable of chipping in on offense this preseason.

Stock down: Every other tight end

None of these guys are going to make the team if the Chargers’ goal is to create an optimal 53-man roster.

There were some rumblings that Braedon Bowman may step up this year and become a guy who could help the team, but that hasn’t come close to panning out. Undrafted rookies Cole Hunt and Ben Johnson couldn’t have asked for a better situation to walk into, but they haven’t made the most of it. Je’Ron Hamm is an obvious cut.

Unless one of these guys catches two or three touchdowns in the game against the 49ers, I expect them all to be gone. One option the Chargers will consider is to scour the waiver wire to see the cuts made by other teams.

There may be a tight end who can come in and help by going that route.
