Jyles Tucker Released

In a move that should shock, well, no one, the San Diego Chargers have released Outside Linebacker Jyles Tucker

After joining the team as an undrafted free agent out of Wake Forest in 2007, he made an impact during his rookie season.  In the Week 17 game against the Oakland Raiders during that 2007 season, he was awarded the AFC Defensive player of the week. The team awarded him a 5-year contract worth $14 million in 2008. 

Since then, he's been very quiet, when he's healthy enough to get on the field. He spent much of the 2009 season on the bench with an ankle injury. He spent most of the 2010 season on Injured-Reserve after tearing his pectoral muscle in the week 4 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

He was due $1 million in 2011.

One of the bright spots on his mixed career was his ability to destroy the Raiders.  Looks like the Chargers will need to find someone to replace the Raider kryptonite known as Jyles Tucker.
