Chargers 2023 final roster cuts tracker

Keep it right here for every reported cut up until Tuesday’s deadline.

NFL: Preseason-Los Angeles Chargers at San Francisco 49ers Sergio Estrada-USA TODAY Sports

Along with the rest of the NFL, the Los Angeles Chargers have until Tuesday afternoon at 1 p.m. PT trim their roster all the way down to 53 players for the 2023 season.

There aren’t truly an starting jobs up for grabs within the Bolts’ roster, but plenty of depth roles have yet to be solidified as of Sunday morning.

Who will be the surprise “keep” on the initial 53? Will one of the team’s many 2023 UDFAs be able to break through like former undrafted stars Austin Ekeler and Michael Davis?

Only time will tell. Keep it right here as we keep track of every cut for the Chargers over the next few days.

Tuesday, August 29th

8:40 a.m. PST: Agent Alex Guerrero, who represents John Hightower, tweeted that both Hightower and Keelan Doss were cut. Doss has been informed he’ll be signed to the practice squad, while Hightower will not.

5:56 a.m. PST: A flurry of reports from the Chargers came out early Tuesday morning. First, running back Elijah Dotson has made the Chargers’ 53-man roster, per NFL insider Aaron Wilson.

Secondly, the group of John Hightower, Brevin Allen, Andrew Farmer, and Ty Shelby have all been released. Zack Bailey was waived after an impressive preseason.

Monday, August 28th

2:59 p.m. PST: After throwing a touchdown pass in his preseason finale, the Chargers are waiving 2023 seventh-round pick QB Max Duggan. He’ll likely be brought back on the practice squad.

1:48 p.m. PST: The Chargers are cutting tight end Hunter Kampmoyer, per The Athletic’s Daniel Popper.

1:39 p.m. PST: The Chargers are releasing linebacker Tae Crowder, per ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler. Crowder played in the team’s final preseason game and had a big hit to highlight his time in LA.

Sunday, August 27th

12:37 p.m. PST: The Chargers are releasing cornerback Cam Brown. Brown was the best UDFA corner this preseason and I’d be surprised if he doesn’t end up back on the practice squad.

12:36 p.m. PST: The Chargers waived/injured OT Matt Kaskey. Kaskey joined the team after winning this year’s USFL Championship.

9:33 a.m. PST: The Chargers are releasing edge rusher Carlo Kemp, per Ian Rapoport. He’s the first cut to be made for the Chargers. After a solid preseason, Kemp may be able to find an opportunity elsewhere. If not, he should be a lock for the practice squad.
