The Chargers announced today they have released 11 players ahead of the September 1st deadline to get down to 75 on the roster. The remaining four moves should be announced sometime prior to Tuesday afternoon.

Among the cuts are a few players that, prior to training camp and the preseason, were dark-horse favorites to make the squad. The released players are:

QB Chase Rettig

RB Jahwan Edwards

TE David Paulson

TE Logan Stokes

WR Titus Davis

OT Forrestal Hickman

DL Luther Robinson

DL Cameron Botticelli

LB Curtis Grant

LB Brock Hekking

DB Manny Asprilla

After tweeting out who was released, UT San Diego's Michael Gehlken had this to say about Brock Hekking's release

With four remaining cuts needing to be made before Tuesday and 26 remaining before the final 53 is announced, the Chargers have a tough week ahead.
