Chargers Reportedly Cut DT Luis Castillo
It turns out Luis Castillo won't be back with the San Diego Chargers after all, Kevin Acee of UT-San Diego reported Thursday the team has released Castillo, a defensive tackle who was the team's first-round selection in the 2005 NFL Draft. The move is curious considering the Chargers re-signed Castillo on April 3. Castillo broke his leg in Week 1 last September and missed the remainder of the season. He visited the Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots as a free agent before signing a one-year, $1 million deal to return to the San Diego Chargers, it will be interesting to see if those teams now sniff around Castillo. "Luis is, he was really having an outstanding camp last year and got hurt in the opening game, and he's, I think he's healthy," Turner said in April. "Last time I talked to him, he thought he was making great strides and great rehabilitation. I see him as a good football player."

Id love him in red and gold...adding decent depth and experience to an already good line. He probably wouldnt "start" but would get a ton of PT, that line thrived last year on heavy rotation, it was pretty much JSmith every play and then the rest of the dudes on constant shuffle through the other 2-3 spots.
Those who would give up essential freedoms for temporary safety deserve neither freedom nor safety
