Garay is expected to hit the open market

With all the talk about Chargers free-agent-to-be receiver Vincent Jackson, not much attention has been devoted to the team’s other potential free agents.

Among the free agents is defensive lineman Antonio Garay.  According to a league source, it’s unlikely that the Chargers and Garay will work out a new contract before March 13.  Which means that Garay will hit the open market.

Garay, who entered the league in 2003, joined the Chargers in 2009.  A career backup, he became a starter in 2010.  Last year, he appeared in 16 games with 13 starts.

He has experience in both a 4-3 and 3-4, but he most recently has played in a 3-4.

    He’ll be a good fit in Indy or Houston, maybe KC.

    They all need Nose tackles.

    I say he goes to Indy if Peyton stays then if not Houston and last option KC.

    chargers are gonna pick up paul soliai from miami. much better than garay ever will be

    Or, you know, he could stay with the Chargers.

    Just because he hits the open market doesn’t mean he can’t re-sign with the team.

    With all the potential upgrades on the FA market this year, it’s smart to save cap space in the hopes of landing a game changer.

    My Chargers wishlist:

    *Pick up Carl Nicks to replace Dielman
    *Pick up Paul Soliai from Miami
    *There are a lot of legit FA DE’s they SHOULD go after
    *Keep Tolbert
    *Release Cason and pick up another CB
    *DEFINITELY FIND A PASS RUSHING LB
    *Do not resign Steve Gregory and get a new safety

    The Chargers are sooo weak at every position, hence that’s why I think they should pick up anyone and everyone they can in free agency

    He can let Garay walk. Dude looks like he’s on roller skates half the time out there.

    I love Pouha for my Jets, but Garay and I went to the same high school and my brother used to wrestle with his…so I can’t fight this urge to wish there was some way Pouha could grab a great contract elsewhere and the Jets snag Garay.

    He’s a NJ State wrestling champ (that’s not easy).
    I practiced on the same mats as this dude. He is built like a damn machine. Scary.

    I’d like nothing more than for this dude to come home to the GMeN and help us defend our title.

    GO TO YOUR HOME!
    ARE YOU TOO GOOD FOR YOUR HOME?!
    GO HOME!!

    Is Mike Tyson his tattoo adviser?

    garay had a great year in 2010, but really fell off the face of the earth in 2011

    but maybe with a fresh start somewhere else he can rejuvinate his career like sproles did

    familiarity = lack of production in sd
