Los Angeles Chargers: Two recent cuts that would fit nicely in LA
By Jason Reed
The Los Angeles Chargers were one of many teams that went through roster cuts on Friday and could benefit from those that were cut from other places.
There was a slew of notable NFL players that were cut from their respective teams on Friday as teams made their moves to open up salary cap space for the new league year. The Los Angeles Chargers were one of those teams, as they made four notable moves on Friday, three of which saved salary cap space.
The team cut veterans Thomas Davis and Brandon Mebane, both of whom were in the last year of their contract with the Chargers and saved the team $9.5 million. The team also restructured Denzel Perryman‘s contract, as he can now earn the $6 million he was going to earn this season through incentives.
The fourth move was franchise tagging Hunter Henry, which obviously does not add salary cap space for the team. However, cutting Davis and Mebane essentially neutralized the salary cap impact of tagging Henry.
The Chargers were not alone in cutting players and just like how Mebane and Thomas could be fits for other teams, there are other cut players that could be fit for the Chargers.
We narrowed it down to three players — three recently cut players that could be an intriuging signing for the Los Angeles Chargers. Here they are, in no particular order.
