The Chargers have kicked off the new week by making several roster moves involving skill position players.

TE Mike Estes and WR Cameron Posey have been signed while TE Asante Cleveland has been waived/injured.

Cleveland has been a nice “feel-good” story on the team and some fans might be a little down about him getting waived. He has a rather interesting back story that makes him a guy who is hard not to root for. Check out his 90-for-90 from British Jamie earlier this summer.

Estes (6’4” 230lbs.) was a record-setting tight end from Gardner-Webb University (NC) who spent some time with the Bolts during their rookie mini-camp. He left Gardner-Webb as the Big South Conference’s reception leader for Tight Ends with 122 catches for 1,533 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Posey (6’1” 185 lbs.) was an undrafted free agent out of Purdue who was most recently with the Carolina Panthers.
