Chargers who will be gone, continued

Nick Dzubnar

Dzubnar was a key special teams player for a few years, but has been overtaken by players such as Adrian Phillips and Derek Watt. At linebacker, the veteran has offered little to no impact. It wouldn’t surprise fans to see him stick around, but at this point there appears to be enough talent on special teams and at linebacker to let him go.

Lance Kendricks

There is a chance he sticks around, but he hasn’t made any significant impact sitting behind Hunter Henry and Virgil Green.

Dylan Cantrell

The Chargers, here, would be letting go of a very promising young player who has never been healthy heading into the regular season. Considering the team is more likely to re-sign Dontrelle Inman and perhaps draft a receiver in 2020, odds are Culkin doesn’t make the cut.

Sean Culkin

Culkin has had chance after chance to make an impact, but something always seems to get in the way. This year, it was a freak Achilles tear.

Geremy Davis

The days of Davis are over, as he has yet to find a truly defining role on the team. He has neither stepped up as a wide receiver nor made a regular impact on special teams.

That’s the end of the list of sure-to-go’s, though it does not include all of the team’s pending free agents. Now, lets’ get into the guys who have a real chance of returning next season, and which of them is most deserving of an extension.
