A former Michigan Wolverines fan favorite was cut from the Los Angeles Chargers on Tuesday, but nearly 40 Michigan Wolverines players remain on NFL rosters.
Carlo Kemp was a fan favorite during his days with the Michigan Wolverines in Ann Arbor, playing multiple positions along the defensive line and excelling as a pass rusher and run stopper at times.
Kemp, a Colorado native and defensive end in the National Football League, was born in Boulder, Colorado.
He has played his preseason ball with the Los Angeles Chargers this season, and managed to finish third on the team with 12 total tackles.
At 6-foot-3, 281 pounds, Kemp moved to outside linebacker recently, and looked as if he might have potential with the AFC West contenders, led by Justin Herbert.
Kemp was cut by the Chargers on Tuesday, August 30, however, as his performance was not deemed good enough to make the 53-man roster.
Several Other Former Wolverines Also Among League Casualties
Other former Michigan players who were cut on Tuesday included linebacker Khaleke Hudson of the Washington Commanders, tight end Sean McKeon of the Dallas Cowboys, receiver Daylen Baldwin of the Cleveland Browns, tight end Nick Eubanks of the Cincinnati Bengals, offensive lineman Michael Schofield of the Chicago Bears, and defensive tackle Donovan Jeter of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
