    It appears the cuts are coming to the light little by little, so let's do this open thread style.

    Josh Reed has been released, which is not surprisingly after the trade for Patrick Crayton.
    Nathan Vasher and Jonathan Crompton, two guys that were "on the bubble", have both gotten the axe. It appears the Chargers will be going with 2 QBs this season because El Capitan is the most durable QB ever.
    From a Cam Thomas tweet this morning, it would appear both him and Brandon Lang have made the 53 man squad.
    Great stories Curtis Brinkley and Shawnbrey McNeal have been cut.

    I'm glad Lang and Thomas made the team. Sad story for Brinkley but what can you do.. I really hope Ajirotutu doesn't make this list

    Vasher, Crompton, Reed gone
    BY KEVIN ACEE, UNION-TRIBUNE
    SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2010 AT 12:10 P.M.

    The news trickling out of Chargers Park is not earth shattering, but it does represent a diversion from past precedent and what would have been expected a week ago.

    Jonathan Crompton, es expected, was released, meaning the Chargers will go with two quarterbacks. If Philip Rivers were to be injured, the team would deal for another QB.

    If there is a surprise so far, it is that cornerback Nathan Vasher was released, though that was signaled when the team picked up Fred Bennett off waivers on Tuesday. Vasher would only have been kept had the Chargers decided to go with four corners.

    The Chargers also cut rookie running backs Curtis Brinkley and Shawnbrey McNeal, meaning they will go with two tailbacks and two fullbacks as opposed to the five-man backfield corps they have typically employed in recent years.

    As expected, receiver Josh Reed was cut. Reed was almost certainly going to be safe had the Chargers not been able to trade for Patrick Crayton. But they figure to go with four receivers, and the acquisition of Crayton on Friday meant Reed was out.

    The Chargers also cut rookie receivers Seyi Ajirotutu and Jeremy Williams. One of them, most likely Ajirotutu, will be signed to the practice squad.

    The Chargers are looking to keep more players at linebacker (Brandon Lang made the team) and the defensive line (as expected, only Derrick Jones got cut).

    Wow both WRs cut. That's a bit of a surprise what's acee on about surely we are going with 5 corners?. Jammer, cason, strickland, bennett and 1 of the rest stick for me. i.e. 5.

    You have to cut them to put them on the practice squad.

    Williams, Ajirotoutou, McNeal, and Crompton will all probably go to the PS if nobody else picks them up.

    The P-squad needs to be loaded with linemen. Not these pussies.

    Yep but both Williams and Tutu could be lost now too. I liked Williams.

    Jansen's been deplorable since his last couple seasons in Washington. If you can't at least push Gosder "T-Rex Arms" Cherilus for PT, you shouldn't be on anyone's roster.

    However, the Phins just cut OG/OT Donald Thomas who started 3/4 of the season for them last season when Justin Smiley was playing the "Buster Davis Game"... Thomas is on a 6th round rookie contract too, so he's ideal as a waiver wire claim.

    I'm really surprised of some of this. I thought that between Ajirotutu, Williams, Brinkley, and McNeal that we would keep one or two of them.

    We cut both rookie receivers to make room for when we sign Vjack.

    Doesn't make much sense considering we were going to have for sure Jammer/Cason/Bennett/Strickland. Don't think we're carrying 6 DBs

    I agree with you. Just some names we recognize around here.

    Bell got cut because the Bills backfield is STACKED with Jackson, Spiller, and Lynch....he might be worth a look but we'd have to sign him to the roster, not the PS.
