San Diego Chargers Roster Cuts: Herndon cut, Williams makes the team

New, comments

A fan-favorite WR has made the 53-man cut for the San Diego Chargers, and another WR gets cut along the way.

The news is flying in now.

He's going to need a new jersey number...

Tyrell Williams has been a favorite of San Diego Chargers fans this year, as he has a unique package of size, speed, and precise-route running. Great to see he made the cut.

Herndon probably wasn't going to make the team, but he put up a pretty good fight in camp.

If we think the Chargers are going to keep six WRs, here's what that group now looks like:

  • Malcom Floyd
  • Keenan Allen
  • Stevie Johnson
  • Dontrelle Inman
  • Jacoby Jones
  • Tyrell Williams

Inman is maybe at risk to be cut, and Jones hasn't had a great camp (after signing as a free agent in the offseason), but it's less likely to happen than many other cuts on the roster.

That's 7 announced cuts now, which leaves 15 that will come out in the next 90 minutes.
