Though Chargers special-teams standout Kassim Osgood has yet to launch his own OCNN-style Twitter journalism operation, the soon-to-be free agent has declared that the Chargers have cut nose tackle Jamal Williams.
Osgood claims in a tweet that Williams, who was placed on injured reserve after only one game last season, is “officially gone.” In a later message, Osgood insists it’s true and points out that players share information with each other.
As to his own situation, Osgood seems to be as intent as ever to leave, saying that a three-percent chance to play receiver in Siberia “is still a chance,” and that he has zero chance to play wideout with the Chargers, “and that is what they TOLD me.”
So while plenty of guys who are eligible for restricted free agency are staying in San Diego, Osgood clearly isn’t — and Williams has been tossed out the door, too. If Osgood is accurate.
