Chargers Re-Sign Antonio Garay To 2-Year Deal


The San Diego Chargers have reached an agreement to bring back DT Antonio Garay for a couple more seasons (Liz Mullen).

We have our starting nose tackle back on the roster!! He will likely be the starter but Cam Thomas will be pushing for more playing time this season. Hopefully getting fewer reps for Garay will increase his production on the field.

We still need a little more depth on the defensive front, but this is a huge step forward before the draft. Hopefully we can bring back Luis Castillo or Tommie Harris also. Now our biggest needs going into the draft will be a pass rusher and a strong safety.

King Honey Badger is back!!! Can’t wait to see what our staff writer, Booga, does with his hair! So happy that I will still see that Hello Kitty car driving around downtown!

    Now the Chargers can use their 3rd round pick as leverage to trade up in the first round to select Courtney Upshaw or in the second round to select SS Harrison Smith.

       @ThomasBell ABSOLUTELY!!! like your thinking on that! 

      • A_Eme_O_Ere

         @epadaon Upshaw simply does not do it for me.

      • A_Eme_O_Ere

         @epadaon  @ThomasBell Upshaw simply does not do it for me. Saw his workout today. He looks sloppy. He’s gained 7 pounds since the combine and it doesn’t look like 7 pounds of muscle.

        • http://boltbeat.com/ epadaon

           @A_Eme_O_Ere  @ThomasBell i hate that upshaw gained 7 pounds before a workout that he knew was coming up… that seems dang lazy for me… that is like an interview for your career and you dont come out on fire! 

  • BoogaP

    YES!!!! So glad to have #71 back in the middle of our D!!
     
    as to the haircut:  Sugar Honey Iced Tea!!  LOL.  Hopefully Garay will hit me up on twitter and give me some ideas.  I haven’t had my hair cut since we moved to North Carolina.  Been here two months! Yikes.!  I’m a man of my word.  I am going to start calling around and see which local barber wants the challenge!  Welcome back big fella!

    Good.

  • 619chargers4life

    yay 

  • SteveDiaz

    Cool! Was waiting for this. Now let’s see what A.J. has up his sleeve in the draft.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ epadaon

       @SteveDiaz i like that there are less areas of NEED with this signing and gives us more flexibility. 

      • SteveDiaz

         @epadaon
         Yes. I can’t WAIT to see what we do in the draft! I’ve been checking online daily to see if Garay had signed. Man, I’m already hyped about football, and it’s still only March! lol
         

  • RussellGrant

    So who is getting the hair cut?  That was part of the deal right?

    • http://boltbeat.com/ epadaon

       @RussellGrant hahahha… that would be staff writer Booga!!! @BoogaP his wife is going to hate him so much for a little bit! 

    • BoogaP

       @RussellGrant
       Whats Up everybody!!  That would be me Russell!  I am taking requests in the event that Garay doesn’t hit me back.
       
      Let me know if you have any ideas!

  • BoogaP

    LMAO! I just have to say that I wished that I had video of my wife’s reaction to the re-signing.  I non-chalantly said, ” Hey honey Garay re-signed the Chargers.”  Wife: “Oh that’s awesome.  Kyah Kitty Hello car guy is staying……… Dave, wait a second, is that, wait a second, Oh Shitake mushrooms!!”
     
    She didn’t say shitake mushrooms!  The funniest part is that we are going to Michigan for Easter and spending some of the time with her side of the family. 
     
    Truth be told my wife is awesome, she has 6 jerseys of her own and puts up with my hoarding of Chargers “anything.”

  • BoogaP

    Oh, sorry. I know that it’s Hello Kitty and not Kitty Hello to the outside world.  Here it’s kitty hello.  That is how my daughter has always said it regardless of months of corrections.  Gave up a while back!  lol

  • Bleu

    Dis is just wut we needed now with garay to return and anchor r defense thngs will be loocn will ugly for mr.manning. Lets go into da draft and continue to build our d add to da pass rush n lets get us a true safety dat can help fill dat void. We dont evn need to be concerned wit da offense to much unless we can steal lamicheal james lets primarily focus on dat oline………

    • http://boltbeat.com/ epadaon

       @Bleu all defense!! steal some o-line late, but defense is priority!!!
       

  • joeynicks

    Haha i always wanted to get my haircut like that too. My gf’s jaw nearly dropped when she saw his hair for the first time. Lol. Sport the hair with pride! Garay always makes things more entertaining on the sidelines!
