The San Diego Chargers have waived veteran wide receiver Chris Chambers, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
After amassing 35 catches for 555 yards and four touchdowns in 10 games in 2007, he had 33 catches for 462 yards and five TDs in 14 games in 2008.
This season, he only had nine receptions for 122 yards and one touchdown in what has been a largely invisible season.
According to coach Norv Turner, the Chargers released Chambers due to the emergence of Malcolm Floyd and the need to sign a replacement for injured linebacker Tim Dobbins.
Expect the Miami Dolphins to be major players in trying to sign Chambers if he clears waivers, as they need significant help at wide receiver and he is very familiar with the team, having played for them from 2001-2007. The St. Louis Rams could also be involved and would be the most likely team to pick him up off of waivers due to their record.
