Linebackers (7)

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

Cut: Kyle Wilson, Nick Dzubnar

This is a deep, talented group for the Chargers and as a result, you will see a bevy of different linebacker combinations this season. Led by the veteran Davis, the young linebackers on this team are ready to make some noise this season.

Tranquill and Egbule should be regular contributors on special teams but they’ll be able to come onto the field in certain situations and make some plays for the team as well.

Perryman, Nwosu and White are all locks for the roster but Brown probably isn’t. Once a promising young player for the team, Brown has had to fight for his spot this year but seven linebackers is a good number to be at.

Though his snaps could be limited, Brown should be back for another year with the team.
