In the past three days, the Chargers have waived three more undrafted rookies, according to a league source.
Linebacker Boris Lee’s, offensive tackle Justin Jeffries’ and wide receiver Marcel Thompson’s NFL dreams have all been temporarily dashed as they failed to make the cut for the Chargers.
Lee, who played at Troy University and teammate of Charger rookie linebacker Brandon Lang, finished his college career with 283 tackles, 9.5 sacks, and five interceptions.
Jeffries was a starter for three years as a Kentucky Wildcat. He seems to have been given the boot to make roster room for recently-signed veteran offensive tackle Tra Thomas.
Thompson, a small-college player out of Lindenwood University, finished his college career with the 83 receptions, 1,342 yards, and 12 touchdowns.
All of these players were unable to earn themselves a roster spot with the Chargers, but hopefully can continue to pursue their hopes of playing in the NFL with a different organization.
