The #Chargers have released WR Gary Banks, ILB Darry Beckwith, G Lee Grimes and RB Marcus Mason. LB Donald Butler placed on Reserve-Injured.
Gary Banks being released I totally get, because there's a lot of depth at WR and he's been nothing but disappointing throughout the preseason. The same could be said for Marcus Mason, and I guess now he has a chance to land on another team and get a shot to impress the coaches before they cut down to 53.
Darry Beckwith is the shocking name on this list. He is a 2nd year ILB that I thought had been playing some decent defense (albeit as part of the third-string unit), but it's his performance on Special Teams that had people like Kevin Acee predicting that Beckwith would land on the final 53-man roster.
