Chargers waived or released CB Will Middleton, S Sean Cattouse, CB Greg Gatson, LB Jerrell Harris, LB Daniel Molls, OT Randy Richards, OG Steve Schilling and WR Luke Tasker.
Middleton was signed in late July, but never viewed as more than a camp body. The 2009 fifth-rounder has made just 12 career starts. Schilling has bounced between the Bolts' practice squad and active roster the past few seasons, but might be out of luck with the new brain trust. Fri, Aug 30, 2013 06:42:00 PM

Chargers signed CB Will Middleton, formerly of the Jaguars.

A nice birthday gift for Middleton, who turns 27 years old today. In San Diego, he'll be a camp body behind Derek Cox, Shareece Wright, and Johnny Patrick.

The Patriots tried out free agent CBs William Middleton and Pat Lee.

The Pats also hosted free agent WR Matt Willis. Middleton appeared in 10 games for the Jaguars last season, making three starts. Lee appeared in 15 games between the Raiders and Lions. Neither would be more than veteran depth in New England.

Jaguars CB William Middleton has been diagnosed with a concussion.

Jacksonville's No. 3 corner, Middleton has appeared in all 10 games this season, starting three. He'll be up against it to be cleared for Week 12, which is bad news with Rashean Mathis still sidelined with a groin injury. Middleton was placed on season-ending injured reserve in late November.

Jaguars re-signed restricted free agent CB William Middleton to a one-year, $1.26 million contract.

The tender was of the original-round variety. Middleton was selected by Atlanta in the fifth round back in 2009, but has already made stops with three other NFL teams. No team currently has more cornerbacks under contract than the Jaguars (10), so the 25-year-old will have his hands full competing for snaps.

Jaguars placed CB William Middleton on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

The move comes out of the blue, as Middleton practiced Thursday before being listed as out on Friday with a hamstring injury. It's a huge loss for the Jags, who were forced to insert Middleton into the starting lineup after losing both Rashean Mathis and Derek Cox for the season in November. What had been a stout pass defense will now be forced to start some combination of Drew Coleman, Kevin Rutland, Ashton Youboty and David Jones at corner. Middleton had previously never missed a game with injury during his three-year career.

William Middleton will take over at right corner with Rashean Mathis (knee) out for the season.

Derek Cox will shift over to the left side and Drew Coleman will continue to cover the slot. Middleton started four games in place of Cox earlier this season, compiling 22 tackles and one interception. The Jags' No. 5 pass defense won't be tested by the Browns this week anyway.

Jaguars re-signed exclusive rights free agent CB William Middleton.

The small-schooler may never amount to much of a corner, but Middleton made an immediate impact as a gunner after being claimed off waivers from Atlanta in September. He racked up 11 special teams tackles in nine games.

Jaguars signed CB William Middleton off the Falcons' practice squad.

This is an indication that the Jags are concerned with Derek Cox (head). Middleton, a small-school, late-round pick, won't solve their secondary woes.

Falcons signed DB William Middleton to their practice squad.

The Bucs released Middleton about a week ago after claiming him off waivers from the Falcons. He was Atlanta's fifth-round pick in April.

Bucs released CB William Middleton.

The Bucs snagged Atlanta's fifth-rounder off waivers over the weekend, but they must not have liked what they saw. Coming out of Furman, he's not ready for NFL receivers.

Buccaneers claimed CB William Middleton off waivers from the Falcons.

Corner is Tampa Bay's thinnest position (save arguably wide receiver), but Middleton probably won't help anytime soon. The Furman product will compete for dime back snaps with fellow small-school rookie E.J. Biggers.

Falcons signed fifth-round CB William Middleton to an undisclosed contract.

Furman's MVP last season, Middleton profiles as an eventual nick or dime corner. The Falcons did not announce terms, but it's likely a three-year deal.
Fri, Jun 5, 2009 01:41:00 PM

Falcons rookie CB William Middleton pulled his hamstring during minicamp practice Wednesday.

The second of Atlanta's uninspiring mid-round cornerback picks, Middleton was injured in a pass coverage drill. As an undersized, small-school DB drafted in the fifth round, Middleton can't afford to lose any practice time.
