This move is not a big surprise. Bigby, who had 79 tackles last season, was not considered a top starter. The Chargers probably will be able to easily find a replacement. In-house candidates Darrell Stuckey and Brandon Taylor are possibilities. One potential replacement could be former Arizona safety Adrian Wilson. He was cut Friday. Former Arizona head coach Ken Whisenhunt is now on San Diego’s staff.
As for free agency, don’t be surprised if the team shows interest in Colts’ cornerback Jerraud Powers. He was in Indianapolis with new San Diego general manager Tom Telesco. The team will let starting cornebracks Antoine Cason and Quentin Jammer test the market.
