Prior reports said that the Chargers were actively shopping Turner around the league in trade talks, but that he was more likely to be released. 

We’ve seen a number of veteran guards released in recent weeks, so this really shouldn’t come as a big surprise.

Turner, 27 is a former third-round pick of the Panthers back in 2014. He was in the final year of his four-year, $2.79 million contract when he and the team agreed to a four-year, $45 million extension that includes $20.5 million guaranteed.

Turner stands to make a base salary of $8,500,000 in 2021.

According to Over the Cap, releasing Turner will free up $11.5million while resulting in no dead money. 

In 2020, Turner appeared in nine games for the Chargers, making nine starts for them at guard.
