Training camp is officially over for the 2020 season and the final deadline for teams to cut down to 53 players is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 5 at 1 p.m. PT.
Some teams have already begun the process, but most will take all the time they can to ensure they find the right 53 players for their roster.
With it having been such an unusual offseason for everyone, will this be the year the Chargers don’t sign an undrafted free agent? They’re currently on a 23-year streak of doing just that, but not many UDFAs — aside from one of the two fullbacks — has that great of an opportunity to stick around.
Time will tell.
Stay up to date here as we track all the moves made by the Chargers over what should be a very eventful weekend in the NFL.
