As expected, the Chargers have cut nose tackle Antonio Garay. The Chargers announced the release of defensive tackle Antonio Garay on Tuesday. Garay’s journey to an NFL starting job was a long one. A sixth-round pick of the Browns in 2003, Garay appeared in eight games last year and had one sack and seven tackles. He was the Browns’ last pick in the 2003 NFL Draft, but he didn’t become a first-stringer until seven years later with the Chargers. Neither Thomas nor Franklin had a sack last year, but each contributed to a run defense that ended fifth in yards per carry.
