The Los Angeles Chargers announced their final round of cuts to get down to their 53-man team and former Clemson receiver Artavis Scott was among the large group of players released.

Scott took to Twitter after hearing about the roster news.

"I don't need sympathy from nobody," Scott posted. "I'm GOOD so please don't text me with that it's in Gods hands and I trust him so save it thank you."

Scott was an All-ACC wide receiver each of his three seasons. He was Clemson’s career leader with 245 receptions (fifth in ACC history) for 2,458 yards and 19 touchdowns in 1,981 snaps over 43 career games (36 starts). He caught a pass in 42 of 43 games and finished with a streak of 38 straight with at least one reception, setting a school-record streak. He is also fifth in Clemson history with 19 career receiving touchdowns.

In 2016, Scott was named Second-team All-ACC (media) and was second on the team with 76 receptions for 614 yards and five touchdowns in 709 snaps over 15 games (15 starts). He also owned top kickoff return (23.3) average on the team, while adding four special teams tackles in coverage.
