Schefter says that it looks like Turner will be traded or released at some point in the near future.

There had been buzz that Turner was likely to be a cap casualty this offseason, so this shouldn’t come as a big surprise. 

Other teams are reportedly shopping veteran offensive linemen in trade talks before the start of free agency. 

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, trading or releasing Turner would 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.
