The San Diego Chargers released 11 more players today in order to get down to the league mandated 53 man roster.  While Meachem (who we are still paying $5M this season) was not a surprise, I was a little surprised to see Hill on the list.  I hope he ends up on the practice squad.

Here is a list of players the team let go:

Tackle Nick Becton
Linebacker Frank Beltre
Tight End Ben Cotton
Cornerback Marcus Cromartie
Defensive End Logan Harrell
Running Back Michael Hill
Cornerback Josh Johnson
Linebacker Thomas Keiser
Wide Receiver Robert Meachem
Center David Molk
Tight End David Rolf

Now that this business is done, the team can focus on getting ready for the Monday night opener against Houston!
