After finishing in third place in the loaded AFC West (behind the champion Denver Broncos and runner-up Kansas City Chiefs), the San Diego Chargers returned to the postseason in 2013. They actually won their first round playoff game, defeating the Cincinnati Bengals before losing to the Broncos in the divisional round so they clearly wanted to keep their team together.
Heading into the offseason, the Chargers had a few decisions to make.
They re-signed cornerback Donald Butler, guard Chad Rinehart, cornerback Richard Marshall, center Rich Ohrnberger and wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu, among others.
Of course, when you spend money, there will have to be a few casualties.
According to Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun and The National Football Post, the Chargers have released linebacker Terrell Manning.

Manning was claimed off waivers by the Chargers after being released by the Green Bay Packers in 2013.
He was originally drafted by the Packers with the 163rd overall pick in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft. He had three tackles in his rookie season and did not records any statistics last season.
