    Chargers reach 53-man roster

    San Diego released 23 players on Saturday to reach the mandatory roster limit nine days before its season-opener at Kansas City.
    SAN DIEGO – The Chargers released 23 players Saturday to reach the mandatory 53-man roster limit.

    The remaining group includes 29 players on defense, 21 on offense and three specialists.

    Two undrafted rookies, linebacker Brandon Lang and tackle Ryan Otterson, made the team. Receiver Josh Reed and cornerback Nathan Vasher were the most experienced players released.

    The Chargers kept six cornerbacks, including the newly-acquired Fred Bennett, whom San Diego claimed off waivers Tuesday. Bennett still has not practiced with the team but played against San Francisco in the preseason finale and made an interception. Other members at the position include Quentin Jammer, Antoine Cason, Donald Strickland, Brandon Hughes and Dante Hughes.

    The team kept four backs (Ryan Mathews, Darren Sproles, Mike Tolbert and Jacob Hester) and four receivers (Malcom Floyd, Legedu Naanee, Buster Davis and Patrick Crayton). Crayton came to the Chargers via a trade with Dallas on Friday.

    I hope Brinkley makes it to the practice squad.
