The Chargers have released former first round pick, Larry English, after five years in San Diego. The highly rated prospect out of Northern Illinois never put it all together in San Diego and finishes his Charger career with only 11 sacks. That’s an average of 2.2 sacks per season.
English was set to count as a $2.4 million dollar cap hit for the Chargers. While $865k will still count as dead money, the Chargers have freed up some space allowing for the Flowers contract to fit into the budget. The other popular pick for release has been guard, Jeromey Clary. This move should help Clary breath a little easier, but by no means is he guaranteed a spot without a strong training camp.
