The Chargers announced the release of defensive tackle Antonio Garay on Tuesday.

Garay, 33, notched 16 tackles and one sack in eight games for San Diego in 2012. He started a combined 28 games for San Diego in 2010 and 2011.

Garay’s journey to an NFL starting job was a long one. 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.

According to Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Garay’s departure will save the Chargers $5 million against the salary cap.

    From Mr. Irrelevent it took him seven seasons to become a starter. Just scratching the surface of his ultimate potential, obviously.

    “EVRYTHING MUST GO, St Patrick’s day sale”. Now threw the rest of the week buy a couch at Sam Levitz and GM Telesco wil throw in a line men from either side. Hurry while supplies last, one lucky buyer will get Ryan Matthews for free!!!!!

    Not to draw any direct correlations, but the Chargers were not putting QB’s in body bags on any regular basis… or since Merriman had his knee shredded by Tennessee.
