Chargers release WR/KR Dwight

SAN DIEGO (Feb. 22, 2005) -- The San Diego Chargers released receiver-returner Tim Dwight after four injury-marred seasons.

Dwight was slowed last season by toe and hamstring injuries, and sustained a collapsed lung in both the 2001 and 2003 seasons.

Dwight returned 50 kickoffs last season for a 24.4-yard average and one touchdown on an 87-yard return against the New York Jets. He caught only two passes, including one for a 23-yard touchdown.

He started 19 games with the Chargers, caught 91 passes and scored seven touchdowns -- three receiving, two rushing, one kickoff return and one punt return.

Dwight was obtained the day before the 2001 NFL Draft in a deal that sent the No. 1 pick to the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons used the pick on Michael Vick, and the Chargers used the fifth pick overall on LaDainian Tomlinson.
