·1 min read

The Chargers have trimmed their roster down to 85 players ahead of the mandatory cut deadline, which is at 1 pm PT.

Yesterday, Los Angeles cut three and added long snapper Matt Overton to bring the roster to 86 players.

To get it to 85, L.A. released quarterback K.J. Costello and tight end Matt Seybert and signed edge defender Davin Ballamy on Tuesday.

This is the first of three roster cuts the Chargers are required to make, with the league’s new rule that started this year.

Here’s a look at the rest of the mandatory cut dates:

  • Tuesday, August 24: Down to 80.

  • Tuesday, August 31: Down to 53.
