PFT wrote last week that Chargers G.M. A.J. Smith was determined to make some changes to his team during its bye week and in advance of the trading deadline.
The changes have begun.
The team released safety Clinton Hart Wednesday, according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune and Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Hart doesn’t have a big name, but he’s started 33 out of the 34 games he’s played since 2007, so the move should resonate on a defense where there are a number of jobs reportedly up for grabs.
