Chargers roster cuts: OT Max Starks leads list of 11 players released

Jody Gomez-USA TODAY Sports

The Chargers need to cut 11 more players to get to the roster limit.

The San Diego Chargers cut 11 players on Friday, getting them closer to the 53-man roster limit before Saturday's deadline. The team announced the moves on its website.

Max Starks was the most notable name cut from the roster. Starks joined the Chargers this offseason after nine seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Given how dire San Diego's offensive line situation has become, Starks' release doesn't bode well for his future with the league. He's struggled with injuries in recent years.

The Chargers will need to make 11 more cuts to reach 53 players.

Here is the full list of players cut from the team (h/t to Bolts from the Blue):

Cornelius Brown, cornerback

Sean Cattouse, safety

Phillip Dillard, linebacker

Greg Gatson, cornerback

Jerrell Harris, linebacker

William Middleton, cornerback

Dan Molls, linebacker

Randy Richards, tackle

Stephen Schilling, guard

Max Starks, tackle

Luke Tasker, wide receiver
