Chargers release Wilhelm

Posted Jul 24, 2009

Linebacker Matt Wilhelm, a fourth-round draft choice of the Chargers in 2003, was released Friday.

“We appreciate Matt’s effort and hard work over the past six years,” Head Coach Norv Turner said.  “We like our depth at inside linebacker, so we decided to make this move now to allow Matt a chance to land with another team.”

Wilhelm was a reserve and key special teams player for the first four years of his career before he became a starter in 2007.  In 2008, Wilhelm split time with Tim Dobbins

The Chargers recently signed Kevin Burnett, a veteran free agent formerly with the Dallas Cowboys, to compete at the position.  Dobbins and Burnett are the leading candidates to start alongside fellow inside linebacker Stephen Cooper.

Rookies and select veterans will be on the field Monday morning for the first training camp practice.  The entire squad will be on the field together for the first time on Friday, July 31.
