Los Angeles Chargers News

Tyrell Williams, Officially released

The Raiders released Williams (shoulder) on Wednesday.

Analysis: Reports of Williams' pending release initially surfaced back in January, so it doesn't come as any sort of surprise to see the move now made official. Williams, who missed all of 2020 due to a labrum injury, was just two seasons into the four-year, $44 million deal he inked with the Raiders back in 2019. Per Tashan Reed of The Athletic, his release will save Las Vegas $11.6 million in cap space for 2021, and $23.1 million over the next two years. Now 29 years old, Williams -- when healthy -- stands to draw interest on the free agent market from teams in need of veteran depth, but it's hard to picture him landing another starting gig.

Dalton Schoen, Inks future deal with Chiefs

The Chiefs signed Schoen to a future deal Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: While Schoen was unable to make the Chargers' 53-man roster, the Chiefs are giving the receiver a chance to make his NFL debut. With a plethora of receivers ahead of him, it will likely take multiple injuries before the 24-year-old will see the field.

Kenjon Barner, Minimal action on offense in '20

Barner (groin) returned seven kickoffs for 167 yards and ran back 13 punts for 75 yards during the 2020 regular season across six games. He logged just six snaps from scrimmage, failing to bring in his only target.

Analysis: The veteran back saw minimal action on offense for the third time in his last four stops, plying his trade as a full-time return man when not on the Buccaneers' practice squad. Barner also dealt with a concussion and a groin injury, the latter which landed him on injured reserve in late December and ultimately kept him sidelined through the team's postseason run. The 31-year-old also served a four-game suspension for violation of the NFL's Policy on Performance-Enhancing Substances during the majority of October and early November, making it an eventful year. Jaydon Mickens also performed well in a returner capacity for Tampa Bay and finished the year in that role, and as a younger option, he presumably has the upper hand on Barner if a decision came down to bringing just one of them back into the fold in 2021.

Tyrell Williams, Expected to be cut

The Raiders are expected to release Williams (shoulder) at the start of the new league year in March, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Williams missed the entire 2020 season due to a shoulder injury, for which he underwent surgery back in September, but Pelissero reports he's now just two to three weeks away from full health. The soon-to-be 29-year-old was fairly effective for the Raiders back in 2019, when he logged a 42-651-6 stat line in 14 contests despite battling plantar fasciitis, so he could be an intriguing free agent option for teams in need of veteran help at wideout. Cutting Williams will free up roughly $11.6 million in salary cap for the Raiders in 2021.

Sean Culkin, Inks futures deal

Culkin signed a reserve/future contract with the Chiefs on Friday, Dave Matter of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Analysis: The 27-year-old appeared in one game for the Ravens this season and spent most of the year on the practice squad, but he'll now join the Chiefs on a futures deal. Culkin has two catches for 36 yards across 19 appearances since going undrafted in 2017.
