Chargers allow five players to become free agents, Legedu Naanee among them

New, comments

Rounding out our news of player moves on the Chargers, the team today announced they have not tendered contracts to five players, thus allowing them to become unrestricted free agents.

The biggest name on the list is Wide Receiver Legedu Naanee, who you may remember recently got into some legal trouble a couple weeks back.  In his time with the Chargers, Naanee garnered his fair share of fans and showed signs of being a solid slot receiver.  But his recent injury issues coupled with his off-the-field problems – the Indianapolis incident wasn't his first run-in with the fuzz – all but sealed the deal in this being his last season with the Chargers. Naanee's value to the Chargers was also lowered a bit by Patrick Crayton's immediate and positive impact after coming here from Dallas.

Also having played their last game as a Charger are linebacker Darry Beckwith, fullback Billy Latsko, long snapper Ryan Neill and safety Pat Watkins.
