Chargers waiving tackle Joe Barksdale

The Chargers already have a right tackle who can commit false starts that lead to touchdowns, so they don’t need Joe Barksdale anymore.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Chargers are waiving the veteran tackle.

He has been on the inactive list lately (with Sam Tevi starting at right tackle, and getting away with penalties on touchdown plays). Barksdale started the opener and appeared in six games this year.

He was ruled out of Sunday’s game last week with what were termed personal reasons.

The 29-year-old has 74 career starts, in stints with the Rams and Raiders as well.

  1. that ref who missed the call last night needs to be fired! doesn’t he know he’s supposed to cheat FOR the Steelers, not against?! The Steelers have been getting help for 30 years from the NFL refs I thought it was written into the rule books…but maybe this time Roger the Clown told the refs to help out the new LA franchises. Just strange to not seeing every call go the Steelers way, doesn’t look like the NFL without the refs cheating for them.

    Isn’t this the guy who tried to harm himself when he got hurt last year? I hope they have support in place to help him with this transition in that case.
    Thanks for the real and caring post realfooballfan. Joe is a great guy with some issues, and will be missed.

    Also a nice contrast to the snarky, sarcastic and opinionated post by the “author” of this story, who is clearly using this medium as a podium for his own biased agenda.
