Brad Sorensen's on-again, off-again employment by the San Diego Chargers is off again, as the team released the former Southern Utah quarterback on Wednesday.

According to the team's transactions, Sorensen was waived with a non-football injury designation. Two weeks ago, San Diego signed another quarterback, North Carolina's Bryn Renner, giving the Chargers four quarterbacks — including starter Philip Rivers and Kellen Clemens — before Sorensen's release.

Sorensen became the T'Birds' first NFL draft pick when San Diego selected him in the seventh round in 2013. He was with the Chargers through August 2014 before being released and briefly joining the Tennessee Titans.

Sorensen, who started his college career at BYU in 2009 before transferring to SUU, rejoined the Chargers in December 2014 and stayed with them last season. San Diego routinely kept him on the move, from being released to joining the practice squad, and at one point he joined the active roster.

In 12 preseason games over the past three seasons, his only NFL action thus far, Sorensen has thrown for 786 yards, three touchdowns and seven interceptions while completing 54.9 percent of his passes.

His younger brother, former BYU safety Daniel Sorensen, is a third-year player with the Kansas City Chiefs.
