Chargers Activate DT Corey Liuget, Waive DT T.Y. McGill


The Los Angeles Chargers announced Saturday that they’ve activated DT Corey Liuget from the exempt list and waived DT T.Y. McGill.

Liuget, 28, is a former first-round pick of the Chargers back in 2011. He’s currently in the fourth year of his six-year, $58.219 million contract that included $30.477 million guaranteed and set to make base salaries of $8 million and $7.5 million over the next two years of the agreement.

In 2017, Liuget appeared in 12 games for the Chargers and recorded 21 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a forced fumble and two pass defenses. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 32 interior defender out of 122 qualifying players.

McGill, 25, originally signed on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina State back in 2015. He lasted just a few months in Seattle before he was claimed off of waivers by the Colts.

Indianapolis elected to move on from McGill coming out of the preseason and he was once again claimed off of waivers, this time by the Browns. McGill was on and off of the Browns’ practice squad last year before signing with the Chiefs to a futures deal.

He was among Kansas City’s final roster cuts coming out of the preseason and was quickly claimed off waivers by the Chargers.

In 2017, McGill has appeared in three games and recorded one tackle.
