9. Ja'Sir Taylor

It's not personal for Stick, but it is personal for Ja'Sir Taylor.

The 2022 sixth-round pick has exceeded expectations by making 9 starts and playing in 33 games over his first two years, but that has really been more about the depth in the Chargers' secondary than anything he's done to earn the playing time.

Taylor has given up a completion rate north of 63.0% when targeted in each of his two NFL seasons, conceding an average of 8.6 yards per target.

There are two years left on Taylor's contract, but the Chargers would only take on $66,000 in dead money for cutting him.

The roughly $950k in cap savings wouldn't be especially meaningful, but freeing up a spot on the 53-man roster makes it well worth moving on from Taylor at this point.
