As they trim their roster down for the upcoming roster cut date, the San Diego Chargers have released 11 players that weren't going to make the team without a miracle occurring.

With the first round of roster cuts coming tomorrow, the San Diego Chargers decided to go ahead and get some of it over with early. They released 11 players today, which takes them from 90 players on the roster to 79. They'll need to release 4 more tomorrow.
