    SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Chargers released four players on Monday: safety Kevin Ellison[​IMG], defensive tackle Ian Scott[​IMG], running back Cory Jackson[​IMG] and wide receiver Jordyn Jackson[​IMG].
    The moves came four days after the team’s final on-field Organized Team Activities (OTAs) session.
    Ellison and Scott started a combined 16 games last season. However, the Chargers selected players at each of their positions during this year’s NFL Draft, safety Darrell Stuckey[​IMG] from Kansas in the fourth round and defensive tackle Cam Thomas[​IMG] from North Carolina in the fifth round.
    Ellison, in his second year out of USC, made 52 tackles as a rookie and played more often during running situations.
    Scott, who played two seasons in San Diego, made one sack and 16 tackles last season.
    Jordyn Jackson, an undrafted receiver, played running back at Eastern Oregon until last season. Cory Jackson, also undrafted, is a blocking fullback out of Maryland.

    No big losses...of course Ellison may have far bigger things to worry about these days.

    Jackson was a bit of a surprise since I heard people refer to him almost as a proper successor to Lorenzo Neal

    I would have liked to see him given more of a chance to unseat Hester.

    As for the rest .... meh.

    In order to reach the roster limit of 80 players for training camp, the Chargers will have to release one more player, assuming all of their draft picks sign.



    I wonder who it will be...

    He wouldn't be used, just like LoNeal was told he wouldn't be. The offense changed and a LoNeal style FB isn't used in the offense.

    No, he isn't on the list, which is why I didn't include him. Thanks for being a douche

    Seahawks' decision on Kevin Ellison puts Chargers in a bind
    Posted by Mike Florio
    June 25, 2010 10:21 AM ET


    The news that the Seahawks already have parted ways with safety Kevin Ellison due to the conclusion that he failed a physical could mean that his relationship with the Chargers has not completely ended.

    Per a league source, the Seahawks' move creates a potential problem for the Chargers.

    Given that Seattle's doctors have determined that Ellison can't pass a physical, it means that Ellison (in the view of the men in the white coats) came in the door too injured to play. Which means that the Chargers possibly waived him while he was injured.

    Which fuels a potential injury grievance against the Chargers.

    Conspiracy theorists may wonder whether Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was hoping either to do a favor for his former USC pupil, who could end up recovering all or part of his 2010 salary from San Diego, or to stick it to Chargers G.M. A.J. Smith for various possible reasons (e.g., wanting too much for Charlie Whitehurst, essentially telling the Seahawks to get bent when they called about Vincent Jackson, or generally being in the way of what would have been a much more ideal NFL destination for Carroll).

    Still, the motivation doesn't matter; the maneuver creates a potential problem for Ellison's original team -- unless and until someone else claims him on waivers and he passes the physical.



    :icon_rofl: Pete Carroll & AJ - 2 turds, 1 bowl

    I had a feeling releasing Ellison that way was not a great idea. I said before that AJ has a massive ego. He can score big, but he can come up snake eyes at the wrong time. Ellison was cut loose too soon, despite his problems. There are a number of former Chargers doing rather well in the NFL.
