Chargers dump Max Starks in early cuts

Since he wasn’t good enough to beat out King Dunlap for the starting left tackle job, the Chargers didn’t feel the need to keep Max Starks around.

The former Steelers starter was among 11 players released today by the Chargers.

Starks was given a chance to compete, but was never able to establish himself on a line that could still use some help.

Also released were cornerback Cornelius Brown, safety Sean Cattouse, linebacker Phillip Dillard, cornerback Greg Gatson, linebacker Jerrell Harris, cornerback William Middleton, linebacker Daniel Molls, tackle Randy Richards, guard Steve Schilling and wide receiver Luke Tasker.

They’re now down to 64, leaving 11 moves to make before tomorrow’s deadline.
