Today’s the day.
By 4:00 p.m. ET, the Chargers, along with the rest of the NFL, will have to trim their roster down to 53 players.
After cutting 11 players on Monday, their roster currently stands at 69. 16 more players will have to hear the unfortunate news but that doesn’t exactly mean their football dreams are over. In fact, with a 16-man practice squad this year, the majority of those players could end up sticking around.
Ahead of this afternoon’s deadline, please use this post to discuss any and all things Chargers that may be itching to get off your minds. Be on the lookout for my final 53-man roster prediction that will drop before the deadline!
