NFL Roster Cuts: San Diego Chargers release OT Nick Becton

Undrafted free agent rookie offensive tackle Nick Becton has been cut by the San Diego Chargers. Five more players will be released by 3pm PDT.

This guy was one of my sleepers to make the San Diego Chargers 53-man roster today. I thought that Nick Becton had more potential than Mike Harris, and he has performed better than Max Starks. He was an undrafted rookie out of Virginia Tech, meaning that he had been seen by all the scouts and none of them thought he had what it takes to make it in the NFL, but I like his combination of size, power and quickness.

I'd like to see Nick end up on the team's practice squad, because I think he could eventually be a very good backup swing tackle.
