The Chargers have released veteran offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga.

The move, which had been widely expected, became official today.

Bulaga’s release creates $10.75 million in salary cap space for the Chargers.

Although the Chargers once thought Bulaga was going to be a major part of their offense going forward, signing him to a three-year, $30 million contract in 2020, he has played in a total of just 11 games over the last two years.

Bulaga, who is recovering from surgery for a core muscle injury, will hit free agency, and he’ll surely have some offers, though not for the kind of money the Chargers were paying him.

  1. My guess is with his experience starting he likely gets about 4 million with a chance to earn the same based on playing time/games played due to his health history.

  2. GB could be attractive if he wants to take a team friendly deal.
    Right Tackle is wide open after letting Billy Turner walk.

  3. LA spent all their money elsewhere. Their OL and DLs are in a shambles.

    Trashing the Charges won’t make your pitiful Pats any better….

    Seems he is a very big injury risk to avoid….could be a great pickup for the pitiful Pats….eh …troll?

    I think RT will be manned by Yosh Nijman this coming season.
    The kids worked hard to maintain his spot on this roster over the last couple of seasons and last year he showed he can compete and play at this level.

    Besides, do you want to be the one to retire his robot dance?
    It puts that dopey griddy to shame.

    Hiring Bulaga at this point would purely be a depth move, and in all honesty, there’s healthier and cheaper options available.

  5. I don’t understand why a player like this doesn’t take a year off to rehab and come back to the market next season. He’s going to play for a reduced rate as it is.

  6. Wow, did not even give him a chance to prove himself in camp. There is a few teams with SORRY offensive lines out there so maybe he can get that chance with some other team.

  7. Used to be a very good OL for Packers but fallen off radar. Maybe at a reduced rate c/b a fit for some teams.
