Report: Chargers waive Zach Mettenberger

Today is a sad day for John Gennaro

It appears that Zach Mettenberger has lost the QB competition to hold the clipboard on the sidelines for the Chargers this season.

Mett never looked good while he was in San Diego, so this should be a surprise to no one. As average as Kellen Clemens and Mike Bercovici have looked, Mett looked worse.

The team has until 4pm EST today to make 7 more cuts to get down to the required 75 man roster. I would expect to see those in a bulk announcement like we got yesterday from the team. I am also expecting the team to make some sort of decision with Javontee Herndon today, whether that is to IR him, PUP him, or release him.

The question now becomes, do the Chargers keep 3 QBs this year or do they stick with just 2. With the talent elsewhere on the roster I’m hoping they keep 2.
