Malik Jefferson: Let go by Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferson was waived by the Chargers on Saturday.

There was some chatter the 2018 third-round pick could earn one of the final roster spots up for grabs with the Chargers, but the team opted for more depth along the offensive line instead.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals waived Jefferson on Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

The 22-year-old was a special teams stalwart last season, playing 215 snaps, and made 12 tackles.

The youngster will be an intriguing addition to another defense elsewhere.
