Colts hired Chargers WRs coach Nick Sirianni as offensive coordinator.

Sirianni has spent time as both a QBs and WRs coach at the NFL level for the Bolts. The 36-year-old is an out-of-the-box hire, but that's to be expected at this stage of the hiring process. It was either new coach Frank Reich go with a riser like Sirianni or employ a retread of Darrell Bevell's ilk. We like the Sirianni choice after he and Reich worked together in San Diego. Sirianni has seen wideouts like Keenan Allen and Tyrell Williams blossom under his tutelage in recent years.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Chargers are expected to re-sign DC Gus Bradley.

Bradley drew some interest from the Packers and Seahawks when his contract expired on Tuesday, but the Packers have settled on Mike Pettine for their DC job, while the Seahawks don't have a DC opening with Kris Richard still in place. Richard has been connected to the Colts' head-coach gig, but he seems like a long shot. It makes the most sense for Bradley to go back to L.A.

Cardinals signed C Max Tuerk off the Chargers' practice squad.

Tuerk was a third-round pick of the Chargers in 2016, but he did not play any snaps as a rookie and was waived after serving a four-game PED suspension to start this year. C Daniel Munyer (toe) was placed on injured reserve in a corresponding move.

Free agent K Younghoe Koo worked out for the Chargers.

Koo was waived from Los Angeles earlier this month. The Chargers could be looking to replace Nick Novak, who missed a costly Week 6 field goal. Andrew Franks and Jason Myers also visited this week.

Bears acquired WR Dontrelle Inman from the Chargers in exchange for a conditional 2018 seventh-round pick.

Inman has played just 39 snaps this season as the Bolts' No. 4/5 receiver. This was a trade that made complete sense for both sides; the Bears badly need receiver help, and the Chargers had no use for Inman in the final year of his contract. Inman has been productive when given opportunities in the past. Last season, he caught 58 balls for 810 yards and four scores. Inman has good size at 6'3/205 and has averaged 13.7 yards per catch. The 28-year-old should contribute immediately in an offense that has been starting Tanner Gentry and Tre McBride.

Chargers waived K Younghoe Koo.

An UDFA out of Georgia Southern, Koo had converted just 3-of-6 field goal attempts through four NFL games, though some icing was involved. That, of course, is part of the game at this level. 23-year-old Koo was 9-of-9 on extra points. He'll probably get another chance elsewhere.

Chargers waived C Max Tuerk.

The No. 66 overall pick of last year's draft, Tuerk didn't play a snap as a rookie as he returned from a college ACL tear. He then served a four-game PED ban to begin 2017. Perhaps the Bolts will try to stash him on the practice squad, but waiting on this high of a draft pick is usually cutting ties for good.

Ex-Vikings and Chargers G/T Mike Harris has retired from the NFL after five seasons.

Harris spent all of last season on the NFI list with an undisclosed illness that has now been brought to light. He suffers from a rare congenital condition known as arteriovenous malformation (AVM) that was discovered in spring of 2016 when Harris initially thought he was having a stroke. The 28-year-old appeared in 48 career games, making 33 starts and starting all 16 in 2015.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Chargers "recently reached out" to free agent CB Darrelle Revis.

The Chargers' interest makes sense with Jason Verrett headed for season-ending knee surgery. Per Schefter, Revis has been contacted by a "handful of teams" and fully expects to play this season. The 32-year-old has been training in Florida while waiting for his next opportunity. He hasn't generated much interest since being let go by the Jets in February.

Chargers released QB Kellen Clemens.

At least for the moment, the Bolts are moving forward with Cardale Jones behind Philip Rivers after cutting Clemens and Mike Bercovici. We wouldn't be surprised to see the Chargers sign a veteran free agent like Luke McCown just before or after Week 1.
Sat, Sep 2, 2017 04:27:00 PM

Chargers waived RB Andre Williams.

The Chargers also cut ties with backup QB Mike Bercovici, PK Josh Lambo, DT Caraun Reid, RB Kenjon Barner, QB Kellen Clemens, TE Jeff Cumberland, and S Dwight Lowery in their final cut to 53. LB Joshua Perry and RB Kenneth Farrow were waived/injured, so they will end up on IR if they pass through waivers. Williams is running out of chances.

Chargers released RB Kenjon Barner and TE Jeff Cumberland.

Barner received 27 carries across 13 games for the Eagles last season, averaging a solid 4.8 yards per carry. The 27 year old will hunt for special teams work that could possibly lead to a few touches on offense. Cumberland was trying to return from a torn Achilles' tendon.
Sat, Sep 2, 2017 04:04:00 PM

Chargers waived K Josh Lambo.

Lambo was serviceable in two years as the Bolts' kicker, converting 81.2 percent of his field goals, but missed eight extra points. He was also 0-for-3 on 50-plus yard attempts in 2017. The Chargers are going with Younghoe Koo.
Sat, Sep 2, 2017 02:59:00 PM

Chargers released FS Dwight Lowery.

This comes as a surprise. Lowery started 16 games last season, finishing with an interception and a fumble return touchdown, and started the third preseason game. Still, it seems like the Chargers decided to go with Tre Boston at free safety. Lowery should be able to find another job.

Former Chiefs and Chargers CB Brandon Flowers is retiring after nine seasons in the NFL.

A second-round pick in 2008, Flowers spent the first six seasons of his career with the Chiefs before signing on with the Chargers for the final three. Flowers has a lengthy concussion history that likely is playing a large role in this decision. Flowers, 31, met with the Cardinals last month and also spoke with the Steelers and Patriots. Flowers went to one Pro Bowl and picked off 21 passes.

Chargers released/failed physical S Darrell Stuckey.

Stuckey opened training camp on the active/PUP list with a knee issue. The Chargers couldn't afford to wait on him with injuries mounting up. Stuckey's release saves $2.9 million against the cap. A special teams standout, Stuckey won't struggle to resurface when healthy.

Free agent Robert Griffin III will work out for the Chargers on Tuesday.

It will be RGIII's first known visit and workout since he was released by the Browns on March 10. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Griffin has been working out down in Florida with ex-Colts and Stanford OC Pep Hamilton, who also worked briefly with the Browns. The Bolts have Kellen Clemens currently as their backup.

Free agent OT King Dunlap announced his retirement after nine seasons.

Released by the Chargers on March 13, Dunlap hadn't drawn a whiff of interest in free agency. Dunlap struggled with injury and ineffectiveness the past two years, including concussion issues. He appeared in all 16 games just once in his career. Dunlap turns 32 in September.
Mon, Jun 12, 2017 02:38:00 PM

Chargers released LG Orlando Franklin.

The writing was on the wall after the Chargers selected both Forrest Lamp and Dan Feeney on the second day of the draft. Signed to a five-year, $36.5 million contract in 2015, Franklin struggled through injuries and poor play both of his seasons in San Diego. Only 29, Franklin should find another job before camp.
Mon, May 15, 2017 10:39:00 AM

Free agent S Tre Boston tweeted he is visiting the Steelers, Chargers, and Bills.

The meeting with the Steelers happened Friday, and Boston reports it "went great." He will visit the Chargers next with the Bills and former DC Sean McDermott his final stop. Waived by the Panthers Tuesday, Boston was never going to lack for interest on the open market.
