SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Chargers have released inside linebacker Matt Wilhelm a week before their first full-squad practice of training camp.

Wilhelm started the first five games last season before losing his job to Tim Dobbins. Wilhelm also started two games toward the end of the season.

He played six seasons with San Diego, recording 247 tackles and six interceptions.
