The San Diego Chargers needs to cut 22 players overall in the next two days. The Chargers will officially announce their final 53-man roster tomorrow afternoon.

Tevin Reese was drafted by the San Diego Chargers in the seventh-round of this years NFL draft out of Baylor. Reese was one of the more explosive athletes available in this years draft. The Chargers were hoping Reese would be an explosive big-play receiver out of the slot to stretch the field for the San Diego Chargers and also take over the role of return man.

Unfortunately Reese struggled in the return game and struggled to hold onto the ball in his opportunities duringthe pre-season and was passed up on the depth chart by Dontrelle Inman, Seyi Ajirotutu and Javontee Herndon. Look for Reese to be a potential practice-squad candidate, as Reese is still a dynamic athlete that needs more development.

Butler signed with the San Diego Chargers as a free agent at the start of last season and remained on the active roster the entire season.
