Chargers Sign WR Dylan Cantrell to Active Roster; Waive T Joe Barksdale
The Los Angeles Chargers announced on Monday that they’ve signed WR Dylan Cantrell to the active roster and waived veteran tackle Joe Barksdale.
The 6-3, 226-pound Cantrell was the Chargers’ sixth-round pick (191st overall) in this year’s draft out of Texas Tech. He appeared in 46 career games with the Red Raiders with 29 starts, totaling 158 receptions for 1,873 yards and 18 touchdowns. Cantrell suffered a minor injury at the start of training camp that sidelined him the entire preseason. He spent the first 13 weeks of the year on the team’s practice squad.
Barksdale joined the Bolts in 2015 as an unrestricted free agent. He appeared in 48 games at right tackle over the past four for the Chargers, including 42 starts.
