San Diego Chargers: 5 Veterans Who Won’t Make the 53-Man Roster

San Diego Chargers: 5 Veterans Who Won't Make the 53-Man Roster

Intro

The San Diego Chargers lost their fair share of veteran talent this offseason, but there is still more veterans that need to go. With several ineffective seasoned pros still on the roster, San Diego still has some cleaning up to do before the roster is ready to contend. That said, here are five veterans who will fail to make the Chargers’ final roster.

On top of having a name that is a nightmare to spell, Seyi Ajirotutu has yet to prove he is good enough to make any sort of impact at the NFL level. Ajirotutu has just 20 NFL receptions to this point, and I think the Chargers will send him packing soon.

San Diego’s starting guard last season, Jeromey Clary really just isn’t a quality player anymore. Clary is injury-prone and ineffective, and that makes him expendable.

Although he’s a great special teams player, Darrell Stuckey just isn’t good enough to command a roster spot for the Chargers. He’s below-average in coverage, and has sloppy technique. There would be no sense in the Chargers keeping him around.

Despite the fact he filled in admirably as a starting QB for the St. Louis Rams in 2013, Kellen Clemens won’t stick with San Diego very long. Fellow back-up, Brad Sorenson, is better suited to the offense, and I think Clemens will be forced to look elsewhere for work.

A massive draft bust since being selected in the first round of the 2009 NFL draft, Larry English has run out of chances in San Diego. He’s not a good pass-rusher, and English has shown no signs of improvement so far in his career. Releasing English would be a good move for all parties involved.
