    In his younger days, David Binn made it to the Super Bowl with the Chargers in 1994.

    The San Diego Chargers have released long snapper David Binn, the only player left from their 1994 Super Bowl team and the last player left from Bobby Beathard's tenure as general manager.

    Binn accurately delivered the ball to Chargers punters and placekickers since 1994, when he joined them as a rookie free agent. The Chargers made it to their only Super Bowl that season, losing 49-26 to the San Francisco 49ers.

    Binn injured a hamstring in the 2010 season opener at Kansas City and missed the rest of the year. This would have been his 18th NFL season.

    Binn's release means the Chargers will go with Mike Windt as their long snapper. Windt was the fifth long snapper used by the Chargers last year.

    Binn is one of 10 players who were released, including San Diego State alum Brandon Sullivan. Other players cut were Stephen Harrison, Vidal Hazelton, Cameron Kenney, Travon Patterson, G Michael Huey, Jeremy Leman, Ryan Otterson and Shawnbrey McNeal.
