    The Los Angeles Chargers announced on Monday that they’ve claimed tight end Je’Ron Hamm off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks. To make room, the team waived wide receiver Marcus Peterson.

    Hamm is a 6-3, 236-pound tight end who has appeared in six career games with the Washington Redskins and San Francisco 49ers. He has two career receptions for 13 yards, both of which came in 2015 with the 49ers.

    Hamm initially entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2014 with the New Orleans Saints. A former wide receiver in college at Louisiana-Monroe, the Saints converted him to tight end that summer. He was waived during final roster reductions and subsequently signed to the Redskins’ practice squad, where he remained the rest of the year.

    Hamm spent the first half of the 2015 season on Washington’s practice squad before being added to the active roster. He appeared in one game that year before being waived and claimed by the 49ers. Hamm appeared in five games for San Francisco the following year, hauling in two receptions.

    Forrest Lamp - G - Chargers
    Chargers activated OG Forrest Lamp (knee) from the active/PUP list.

    The No. 38 overall pick of the 2017 draft missed his entire rookie season with a torn ACL. He underwent a "minor" follow-up procedure during the offseason. The Chargers were committed to bringing Lamp along slowly and it appears the approach worked. If he can stay healthy and get in shape over the next three weeks, Lamp could begin the year as the Chargers' starting right guard.

    Dolphins cut Gabe Wright for blindsiding Kenyan Drake in practice fight
    http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/24371875/miami-dolphins-cut-gabe-wright-cheap-shot-kenyan-drake

    DAVIE, Fla. -- A message was sent loud and clear at Miami Dolphins headquarters: No cheap shots are allowed against teammates, especially not at the team's starting running back.

    Veteran defensive lineman Gabe Wright was waived by the Dolphins on Tuesday, one day after he charged at and blindsided Kenyan Drake while the running back's helmet was off.

    The incident occurred toward the end of a fight involving multiple players during Monday's practice. It was one of several incidents during a particularly physical and testy session.

    An angry Drake tossed Wright's helmet to the sideline after the skirmish. Drake did not appear to be injured during the fight.

    The fight started when running back Senorise Perry was tackled to the ground unnecessarily for the third time of this particular series. His offensive teammates were fed up and several players on both sides of the ball -- backups and starters -- got involved in pushing and shoving.

    Dolphins defensive coordinator Matt Burke wasn't happy with the fights, saying that perceived intensity can be "sometimes misplaced."

    "It's got to be within the context of doing what we're asking you to do and executing the scheme too," Burke said. "Just coming out here, being a jackass and running around, that doesn't help us either."

    Wright, a 2015 fourth-round pick of the Lions, was running with the third team and appeared unlikely to make the roster. He spent most of 2017 on the Dolphins' practice squad.

    Redskins release veteran cornerback Orlando Scandrick
    http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/24372257/washington-redskins-release-cornerback-orlando-scandrick

    RICHMOND, Va. -- The Washington Redskins released veteran cornerback Orlando Scandrick on Tuesday.

    The move comes as a surprise, considering Scandrick signed with the team this offseason and had worked all training camp as a starter. It also signals the Redskins' comfort level with the development of their young cornerbacks.

    Washington signed Scandrick in March to a two-year deal worth up to $7 million. The Redskins wanted him to start in the slot and perhaps on the outside; that's how they used him throughout camp. The Redskins will save $2.093 million against the cap and have $500,000 of dead money in 2018 and '19.

    A number of young corners have performed well, including Quinton Dunbar, a fourth-year player who switched from receiver during his first camp. The Redskins have been pleased with his development but have always liked his ability in press-man coverage.

    They also have Fabian Moreau, a third-round pick in 2017 who has worked in the slot. Rookies Greg Stroman, a seventh-round pick, and Danny Johnson, an undrafted free agent, also have impressed the coaches. In addition, Washington drafted Adonis Alexander in the supplemental draft in July.

    The Redskins' corners now feature only one player, Josh Norman, with full-time starting experience. They'll have new starters in Dunbar and Moreau (slot), plus the three rookies as backups. Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Tuesday he's confident enough in this group to make the move with Scandrick.

    "It had nothing to do with his play. It was more the rookies' emergence," Gruden said. "If it doesn't work out we still have time to make a move."

    Scandrick spent his first nine seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, starting a combined 50 games the past four seasons.

    Bolts Sign LB Kyle Coleman
    https://www.chargers.com/news/bolts-sign-lb-kyle-coleman

    The Los Angeles Chargers brought in a new linebacker on Tuesday, signing Kyle Coleman shortly before taking the field at training camp. To make room, the team waived DL Albert Havili.

    This marks Coleman’s second stint with the Bolts as he signed with the team midway through last year’s training camp. He appeared in three preseason games with the Chargers, highlighted by a 30-yard pick-six against the San Francisco 49ers. The linebacker also finished with four tackles.

    The 6-0, 231-pound Coleman appeared in 44 games with 11 starts over his collegiate career, playing his first three seasons at Arkansas State before transferring his senior year to Arkansas-Pine Bluff. Prior to joining the Chargers, he also spent parts of the past two seasons on the Seattle Seahawks’ practice squad.

    Pete Carroll says 'personal reasons' a factor in Marcus Smith's release
    http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/24401556/marcus-smith-contract-terminated-seattle-seahawks

    RENTON, Wash. -- In a surprising move, the Seattle Seahawks have terminated the contract of defensive end Marcus Smith, who was projected to fill a significant role as part of their pass-rush rotation this season.

    Coach Pete Carroll said "some personal reasons" factored into Smith's release. He said earlier in the week that Smith's absence from practice was due to a family issue.

    The Seahawks on Friday also made official their deal with outside linebacker/pass-rusher Erik Walden, which was previously reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    "Really, there was some personal reasons that came into it," Carroll said of Smith's release. "He's been a great kid in the program and all. All things considered -- this is as far as I'm going with it -- it was the right thing to do. He understood and agreed with it."

    Carroll said Smith's health wasn't an issue. Asked if Smith had requested his release or if it was a mutual decision or the team's choice, Carroll paused and said: "We talked through the whole thing. I just kind of want to leave it alone because it's personal stuff and I'd just like to leave it there."

    The Seahawks re-signed the 26-year-old Smith to a one-year deal this offseason worth $1.425 million and $400,000 guaranteed. He recorded 2.5 sacks in a rotational role for the Seahawks last season after the Philadelphia Eagles, who had drafted Smith in the first round in 2014, waived him before training camp.

    Smith's release clears a little over $1 million in cap space. However, Walden's NFL tenure means his 2018 salary will be at least $1.015 million.

    The 32-year-old Walden has 36 sacks since entering the NFL in 2008, including four last year for the Tennessee Titans.

    "He's been an outside 'backer and a nickel rush guy," Carroll said. "He's real physical and tough and we'd like to see how he fits into the competition."

    Seattle also signed running back Justin Stockton and waived cornerback Elijah Battle.

    Good chance he winds up with the Chargers. He’s a UCLA guy so I’m sure he’d be open to coming back to LA. If Sturgis or Aguayo don’t absolutely stand out in preseason I could see the Chargers taking Forbath over both and I think they should.

    Aguayo has the yips and Sturgis is nothing special. I'd have to think Forbath would have a shot to make it.

    Remember past preseasons? How the Dolts said this guy was....and......old more...

    Patriots signed running back Kenneth Farrow, receiver K.J. Maye and running back Khalfani Muhammad on Monday, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.

    Farrow originally signed with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Houston in 2016. He played in 13 games that season, gaining 192 yards on 60 carries and adding another 70 yards on 13 receptions.

    He spent last season on injured reserve and was with the Chargers and then the Packers this past offseason.

    I'm trying to be kind, Conc. Just indicating the Bolts annual promotion of a player, keep him for a year, then dump him.
    Newsome....now.....when Branden Oliver came back, they said he was going to be great again. Hardly played, released. When Rivers goes, everyone will be two years tops. No more Jason Witten or Antonio Gates one team player careers.

    I don't know...

    Of all teams the Chargers is recent history have gotten the most out of undrafted free agents and players no one expects anything from. You named a player that few people are going to remember and try to use that to hold against the Chargers like it is a huge scarlet letter they wear on their chest... When you can find the lists of camp cuts littered with the same type of player, year in and year out, from every single team. Including your new team the Steelers... You cant find a single team that keeps players they feel cant help them. As I recall, the Cowboys cut Dez Bryant. A player that cost them much more than Kenneth Farrow ever cost the Chargers. See if Farrow makes their active squad on the Pats. If not does he make the practice squad. Hell if he becomes a star, then you might have something to talk about... that is not a forgone conclusion by any means...

    But I get it. You are mad and bitter (with reason) and need to make mountains out of mole hills to keep your hurt, anger and victimization fresh. So you go on with your crazy self!
