Chargers RG Jeromey Clary (hip, shoulder surgeries) missed all of spring practices and was still on crutches as of mid to late June.
The U-T San Diego calls Clary a "player to watch" due to uncertain health. The Chargers did draft Chris Watt in the third round, and he could threaten Clary's job even at 100 percent. With or without Clary, San Diego's offensive line should be plenty functional in 2014 after a rock-solid 2013 showing. Jul 17 - 10:53 AM

Chargers RG Jeromey Clary is recovering from offseason surgeries on his hip and shoulder.

It's unclear both when the operations took place, and whether Clary will be ready for training camp. Owed a $4.55 million base salary, Clary could be a late-camp release candidate if he doesn't recover on schedule. He continued to struggle as a blocker in 2013, and the Bolts drafted Chris Watt in the third round.

ESPN Chargers blogger Eric Williams considers RG Jeromey Clary a candidate for release.

The Bolts are currently over the NFL's salary cap. Releasing 30-year-old Clary would clear $4.55 million. Clary kicked inside to guard after the team drafted RT D.J. Fluker in the first round last year. He started every game and graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 72 guard out of 81 qualifiers. San Diego has a number of veterans who could be cut, including Eddie Royal ($4.5 million), OLB Dwight Freeney ($3.5 million), and FB Le'Ron McClain ($2.5 million).

Chargers RG Jeromey Clary (clavicle) missed Friday's practice and is not expected to play in Week 4 against Dallas.

San Diego is going to be without three starting offensive linemen against a Dallas defense that ranks second in the NFL in sacks (13). LG Chad Rinehart (toe) and LT King Dunlap (concussion) will also miss the game. This is a scary matchup for Philip Rivers; fire up the Cowboys' fantasy defense.

Jeromey Clary opened OTAs as the Chargers' starting right guard.

Clary has started 78 career games, all at right tackle. After the selection of RT D.J. Fluker with the No. 11 overall pick last month, Clary is trying to make the switch to the interior. The 29-year-old graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 14 right tackle last season, but his pass blocking has long been sub-par. The Chargers current offensive line looks like this: LT King Dunlap, LG Chad Rinehart, C Nick Hardwick, RG Clary, RT Fluker.

GM Tom Telesco confirmed that Jeromey Clary is open to playing guard.

Clary started 14 games at right tackle last season, grading out 38th among 80 overall qualifiers according to Pro Football Focus. Thanks to the selection of Alabama's D.J. Fluker and the loss of Louis Vasquez in free agency, Clary will kick inside. He's a little oversized for the role at 6'6/320, but he accepts that he's not an option at left tackle.

The Chargers will evaluate RT Jeromey Clary at guard.

San Diego used the No. 10 overall pick on Alabama RT D.J. Fluker Thursday night. They could save $2.3M in cap space by dumping Clary, but are not expected to do that anytime soon. They have a hole at guard after losing Louis Vasquez in free agency.

The Chargers could save $2.3 million in salary cap space by releasing RT Jeromey Clary.

It's surprising they haven't done it yet. Long a turnstile in pass protection, 29-year-old Clary should no longer be on scholarship in San Diego with old GM A.J. Smith run out of town. Clary's 2013 base salary is $4 million.

Chargers RT Jeromey Clary injured his left knee on the offense's second play in Week 13 versus the Bengals.

Clary tried to strap it up with a brace but was unable to return. Kevin Haslam filled in while Rex Hadnot took over for LG Tyronne Green (hamstring). The result was little room for Ryan Mathews on the ground and four sacks of Philip Rivers.

Chargers OC Hal Hunter insists RT Jeromey Clary is a better player than he's given credit for by "the outside."

"The outside" consists of game-watchers not affiliated with the team. We noticed in the Chargers' 2011 games that Clary was the offensive line's weak link, particularly in pass protection. "They remember pressure that he gave up, or maybe he missed a block — that's all that comes to mind," said Hunter. "They give him no credit." Clary is locked in as the Chargers' right tackle for 2012. He graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 74 tackle among 76 in 2011.

The San Diego Union-Tribune expects RT Jeromey Clary to remain with the Chargers.

One of the worst offensive linemen in the league last season, Clary is currently set to make $2.85 million in 2012, but the Bolts apparently aren't ready to give up on their longtime right tackle. Signed for roughly $11.5 million through 2014, Clary could still be asked to take a pay-cut before the season.
Tue, Feb 14, 2012 05:36:00 PM

Chargers agreed to terms with RT Jeromey Clary on a four-year, $20 million contract.

That's quite a deal for a player who was nearly pulled for Brandyn Dombrowski early last season. Clary graded out below average in pass protection and run blocking, according to Pro Football Focus. The Chargers can now turn their attention to the defensive side of the ball, but they didn't appear to spend well here. Clary is a very middle-of-the-road lineman.
Tue, Jul 26, 2011 07:13:00 PM

Keeping free agent right tackle Jeromey Clary is a priority for the Chargers.

Clary is a four-year veteran and therefore tentatively expected to be an unrestricted free agent. If the Chargers are confident in retaining Clary, they are freed up to address their hole at defensive end/outside linebacker with the No. 18 overall pick.

The Chargers are expected to keep Jeromey Clary as their starting right tackle, rather than replace him with Brandyn Dombrowski.

The Bolts are suddenly rich at tackle, with Dombrowski slated for "swing" duties behind Clary and returning holdout LT Marcus McNeill. Clary has been a liability in the early going, so Dombrowski could overtake him shortly. For now, though, San Diego will try to keep some continuity on the right side.
Mon, Oct 11, 2010 10:58:00 PM

Jeromey Clary is now splitting reps at right tackle with Brandyn Dombrowski.

The Chargers are experimenting up front, and they seem to be hoping that 2009 fourth-rounder Tyronne Green shows enough potential to stick at left tackle. Pass protection remains on issue for the Bolts. It's not likely to be fixed without Marcus McNeill.
