Chargers cut WR James Jones

The Chargers on Monday made their first first official roster cuts leading up to the 2016 season.

Six players were waived but wide receiver James Jones wasn’t one of them.

However, with NFL teams required to trim rosters to 75 players by 1 p.m. Tuesday, and the roster sitting at 84 players at the time of the Chargers press release, more cuts must me made.

According to reports, Jones is one of those players who will not survive the Chargers first round of cuts.

The former Packer was signed during Training Camp after the Chargers lost Stevie Johnson for the season with a knee injury. Last year, Jones stepped up for the Packers after Jordy Nelson’s season-ending injury.  He caught 50 passes for 890 yards and scored eight touchdowns for Green Bay.

The growth and development of fellow wide receiver Tyrell Williams likely contributed to the Chargers decision to cut Jones.

More cuts are coming.
