The San Diego Chargers took out the trash today by releasing LT Jared Gaither. Gaither still will cost $6 million against the salary cap this year, but we don’t need to see him kicking it next to the trainer’s table or just hiding out in the locker room during practice. Remember that whole body cramp?
Chargers informed LT Jared Gaither today they are releasing him. Results in $6 million cap hit for 2013.

That signing was a mess, but we will move on and search for our next left tackle. Will it be Mike Harris or King Dunlap? I just know that we won’t have to deal with the distraction that was “The Big Lazy”.
New hole? Already was a hole on the roster. Still looking to patch it up. We can hope that Lane Johnson falls to us with the 11th pick in the draft or we can try and sign another player to try and fill his spot. If Johnson is not available with the 11th pick, then we might look in the direction of Terron Armstead in the 2nd round. Either way, we have to fill the hole.
Goodbye Big Lazy!
