Trai Turner was one of two players the Chargers cut ties with on Friday, as Los Angeles also announced it was releasing linebacker Malik Jefferson.

Jefferson was slated to become a restricted free agent, so the Chargers are not tendering the linebacker.

Jefferson played 52 percent of the Chargers’ special teams snaps in 2020recording five tackles in 13 games. A Bengals third-round pick in 2018, Jefferson played 12 games for Cincinnati as a rookie and nine games for Cleveland in 2019. He also spent time with the Titans in the 2020 offseason.
