The San Diego Chargers are set to release DT Antonio Garay to free up some room on the salary cap. Garay was due $3.5M in 2013.
@rapsheet Actually, they WILL release him. Was guaranteed on day he signed contract last year. Due $1.5 mil roster bonus + $3.5 mil salary.

Garay wasn’t the best fit as a nose tackle for the defense, but he was a clubhouse favorite and leader. He also was the clubhouse joker. The rest of the youngsters on the defensive line looked up to him.
There could be a possibility that he re-joins with the team at a cheaper deal. It just depends on how Tom Telesco and Mike McCoy thinks he fits in with the team. He is pretty involved around San Diego and may want to stick around.
