D.J. Fluker poured his heart out for the Chargers from the moment he was drafted 11th overall in the 2013 NFL Draft.
He started all 59 games he appeared in over four seasons, fighting through a myriad of injuries in order to take the field. His time with the Bolts came to an end on Tuesday when he was one of three veterans released early in the morning.
"Parting ways with men I've gotten to know and respect is the toughest part of this job," said General Manager Tom Telesco. "Few players have shown the amount of passion and dedication that D.J. has shown for us the last four years. D.J. was the ultimate teammate who gave every ounce of effort he had to help our team. I will have great memories of D.J.'s time with the Chargers and wish him the best of luck with his career."
Later in the morning, Fluker took to social media to offer a heartfelt goodbye message to the fans.
