Linebacker (7)

Denzel Perryman, Jatavis Brown, Thomas Davis, Uchenna Nwosu, Kyzir White, Drue Tranquill, Emeke Egbule

Cuts: Nick Dzubnar, Tre’Von Johnson, Kyle Wilson, Josh Corcoran, Elijah Zeise

Potential surprise cut: Brown

The Chargers have a solid group here as well, filled with athleticism and players that can cover the entire field. Adding the veteran leadership of Davis has been a quiet and overlooked move, but one that could certainly pay off.

The addition of the verstile Tranquill will make Dzubnar expendable on special teams though Dzubnar could still be given the nod over sixth-round pick Egbule. There shouldn’t be too many surprises here tough.

Telesco has placed a major focus on the linebacker position over the last two years and that is likely partly due to the injury history and Perryman and partly due to wanting to get young, athletic playmakers at the position. He could really see things come to fruition this year with the transactions he has made.

Look for at least one of the players cut to land on the practice squad as well.
