The San Diego Chargers announced on Monday afternoon that they have released outside linebacker Travis LaBoy.

LaBoy signed with the Chargers as an unrestricted free agent last year and started 14 games, but the Chargers have now apparently decided to go in another direction. A defense-heavy draft that saw the Chargers go with South Carolina linebacker Melvin Ingram in the first round made LaBoy expendable.

A second-round draft pick of the Titans in 2004, LaBoy played four seasons in Tennessee and one in Arizona, then missed all of 2009 before returning for one season in San Francisco. The 30-year-old LaBoy now becomes an unrestricted free agent.
