Today comes a move that many expected after the San Diego Chargers used their first round draft pick on OLB Melvin Ingram, as the team released OLB Travis LaBoy.

LaBoy came from the San Francisco 49ers last year along with Takeo Spikes to help Greg Manusky implement his defense. While Spikes played well, Manusky's defense was bad enough to get him fired after one season and LaBoy's performance was poor enough to get him released after one year.

In his defense, Travis was signed on to split time with OLB Larry English and was forced into a starter's role after English and Shaun Phillips went down with injuries. LaBoy led the OLB group in snaps played last year, but will probably have a hard time finding a starting job elsewhere in the NFL.

This move makes it more likely that Larry English will make the Chargers' roster this season, if healthy.
