Round and round we go with Luis Castillo and the San Diego Chargers. After being released by the team on March 5th, Luis went around the NFL and auditioned for other teams before deciding to sign a one-year contract with San Diego on April 4th.

Four months later, with nothing but voluntary OTAs in between then and now, the Chargers' front office has decided to once again release the Defensive End.

What's the reasoning? I don't know. I can't imagine it being his tibia, which forced him to missed most of last season after being broken, because the doctors had to check him out before he signed his new deal. I can't imagine it being John Pagano, seeing as he was named the Defensive Coordinator in early January and could've said no to bringing back Castillo in April.

I imagine that there will be more to this story in the coming days, but right now we're left with nothing but our own thoughts as to why an inexpensive former Pro Bowler (and potential starter) was released in the same offseason that he was signed.
