San Diego's roster became a little slimmer on Monday afternoon.

The Chargers released 11 players in advance of Tuesday's 75-player deadline. Chief among them: Central Michigan's Titus Davis, who fit the big-bodied mold of a Mike McCoy receiver.

The team still needs to chop four additional players to hit the NFL's threshold. Then, early next week, they'll need to make even more tough decisions to shape the final, 53-man group.
