Chargers release statement on Orlando Franklin release, Tre Boston signing

Chargers released offensive lineman Orlando Franklin, per source.

Franklin's release became inevitable when the team drafted guards Forrest Lamp and Dan Feeney in 2017.

Free agent safety Tre Boston, who agreed to a deal with the Chargers on Friday, will also officially ink his contract Monday, likely meaning he'll be a participant when the Chargers hold their first organized team practice activity (OTA) Tuesday in San Diego.

The Chargers might soon be ready to start two rookies up front.

The Chargers released left tackle King Dunlap and right guard D.J. Fluker in the beginning of the offseason. With the Roster pretty much set at this point, and the Chargers already at about $10M in cap space now, this move makes the most sense as it gives the Chargers the most cap space next year.

The University of Miami product signed a five-year, $36.5 million deal in free agency two years ago, including over $20 million in guaranteed money.

The implications are even clearer on the field. After playing at a high level and missing just one game in his four years with the Broncos, the 29-year-old had underwhelmed in his two years with the Chargers.

"I'm not going to go as far to say he's a Day 1 starter", Lynn said of Lamp in late April, shortly after drafting him. "I think that this guy can start in this league, but he's going to have to come in here and prove that".

Let's hope this new offensive line can keep QB Philip Rivers upright and create holes for RB Melvin Gordon.

The Broncos signed guard Ronald Leary and tackle Menelik Watson in free agency and drafted tackle Garett Bolles in the first round. Tuerk's development in particular could have a domino effect on the offensive line.
