BREAKING: Chargers Waive Center Max Tuerk

Bolts move on from the frustrating 2016 third-round pick.

NFL: New Orleans Saints at Los Angeles Chargers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

On Tuesday, the Los Angeles Chargers announced they are waiving C/G Max Tuerk.

A former third-round pick out of USC in the 2016 NFL Draft, Tuerk has been quite the disappointment for a team that has needed reinforcements on the offensive line.

Tuerk has yet to see any regular season action after essentially taking a red-shirt year in order to recover from a torn ACL he experienced while at Southern California.

Before the regular season began. Tuerk was suspended four games due to a violation of the league’s performance enhancing substance policy.

Tuerk spent the preseason losing snaps to rookies Dan Feeney and Forrest Lamp. It seems, despite his athleticism and extra time with the team, he just didn’t click with the offense. The team has decided to cut their losses and move on.

In an additional move, the team also decided to waive DE Whitney Richardson from the practice squad.
