Chargers waive Jonas Mouton

The Chargers have let go of a former second-round pick whose career has been marked by injuries.

The club waived linebacker Jonas Mouton with a failed physical designation on Wednesday, the team announced. In all, Mouton – the No. 61 pick in 2011 — played just three games for San Diego, recording one tackle. The 26-year-old Michigan product missed the 2013 season with a torn right ACL and most of the 2011 campaign with a shoulder ailment.

In another transaction Wednesday, the Chargers placed right guard Jeromey Clary (hip) on the active/PUP list, the club said.

The Chargers have 89 players on their roster, one short of the limit. This includes ex-Ravens linebacker Adrian Hamilton, whose signing the team announced Tuesday. The 26-year-old Hamilton (6-3, 255) played in two games for Baltimore in 2012.

    Wait a minute! You mean to tell me that a Jonas brother plays professional football?
    Crazy world we live in!

    Maybe the Saints should kick the tires as a backup

    I’m really liking the cuts and signings we’ve been making. AJ probably would have paid this guy like Jyles Tucker

    Telesco trimming the fat.

    The second big shocker (not) this week. Jonas was a 5th round pick at best whom AJ plucked in the 2nd round. Still smh over this pick. I wish the best for the young man, but am glad he is not taking space on the Bolts’ roster any longer.

    The House of Bolt has been cleaned by Tommy T.

    His name sounds like a Game of Thrones character.

    Really makes you wonder what goes on in Dean Spanos’ head. He kept Norv and AJ for 3 bad seasons before he finally concluded it didn’t work

    It makes me wonder how soon we’re going to lose Tom Tom Telesco to a better franchise. This guy keeps making too many genius moves and it’s only a matter of time before ownership steps in and ruins it.

    Another UofM failure. No surprise.

    Unfortunate for Jonas, he was lighting up people in camp his rookie season, easily one of the hardest hitters, but his hurt his shoulder and wasn’t the same. Then hurt his knee, idk if he can bounce back but he had promise..

    Unfortunately the Super Bowl express can only carry a limited number of passengers.

    Unfortunately Charger fans keep trying to ride the SB express even though it won’t make a stop there. Choo Choo!

    The best thing Dean Spanos ever did was to hire Tom Telesco. He has a good eye for what the needs are and if he makes a mistake ( Derrick Cox), he swallows his pride and makes the change. AJ Smith could never and would never admit he was wrong….ever. People should not overlook San Diego and what is going on….they are going to be a team that nobody will want to play. They may get beat but it will be a war and the days of thinking San Diego is soft are over.

    Hungry dogs run faster and dont stop.

    This guy was not even ranked high enough to drafted at all and should have been a F.A. signing and AJ & Co. used the 61st pick on him. Perfect example of the horrible drafts the Chargers had after they fired Marty.I hope things continue to improve.

    Oh no !!!
    Wait… Who?

  17. dalcow4 says: Jul 23, 2014 10:21 PM

    Mouton would have been a good chance pick in the 5th.

    In the end he was one of the moves which brought AJ down. Larry English. Buster. Letting Michael Turner go free of charge. Letting LaDanian go one year too early and not doing a year-long finale with the best player in Charger history. Not signing VJax.

    One more, one more.. what was it…?

    Oh yeah– there was some guy named Norv.

    I do have to say though (with all respect to the bolts) as a saints fan i can hate AJ…you guys till ended up with a great qb anyways
