Four players released
SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Chargers released four players on Monday: safety Kevin Ellison, defensive tackle Ian Scott, running back Cory Jackson and wide receiver Jordyn Jackson.
The moves came four days after the team’s final on-field Organized Team Activities (OTAs) session.
Ellison and Scott started a combined 16 games last season. However, the Chargers selected players at each of their positions during this year’s NFL Draft, safety Darrell Stuckey from Kansas in the fourth round and defensive tackle Cam Thomas from North Carolina in the fifth round.
Ellison, in his second year out of USC, made 52 tackles as a rookie and played more often during running situations.
Scott, who played two seasons in San Diego, made one sack and 16 tackles last season.
Jordyn Jackson, an undrafted receiver, played running back at Eastern Oregon until last season. Cory Jackson, also undrafted, is a blocking fullback out of Maryland. Read
