Chargers DE Corey Liuget has dropped 17 pounds already this offseason and plans to play at 290.
Liuget played at 315 last season, so it's significant weight loss. He finished last season on I.R. with a foot injury and also battled a knee problem that required minor offseason surgery. Liuget said he wants to play lighter to extend his career and take pressure off his joints. It should also help him play much quicker. Liuget signed a five-year, $51.25 million extension last spring.

Chargers DE Corey Liuget (foot) said he is 'definitely ready' for the start of the offseason program.

Liuget was placed on I.R. in December after fighting through a foot injury he suffered Week 8. His healthy return will be a big boost for the defensive line, but the Chargers still need to address the position in the draft. San Diego gave up 4.8 yards per carry last season, the second-worst average in the league.
Apr 12 - 10:48 AM

Chargers placed DE Corey Liuget (foot) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Liuget had been playing through his foot injury, but the Chargers will shut him down in a lost season. He'll finish 2015 with 34 tackles and three sacks, grading as PFF's No. 38 defensive end. Liuget will be fully healthy in time for OTAs.

Updating a previous item, Chargers RE Corey Liuget's new five-year extension is worth $51.25 million and includes $30.477 million guaranteed.

The extension was announced earlier this week, but we'd been waiting on the numbers. The $30.477 million total guaranteed is the second-most guaranteed to a 3-4 end. J.J. Watt received $51.8 million in guarantees. Liuget's $10.25 million per year in new money makes him the league's fourth-highest paid player at his position. The Chargers better hope Liuget takes another couple steps forward in his development because when it comes to 3-4 ends, Liuget isn't yet elite.

Chargers signed RE Corey Liuget to a multi-year contract extension.

Liuget seems to be getting paid more for his potential than what he's actually done on the field. He was PFF's 25th-ranked 3-4 end last season, getting negative marks for his run defense and generating only 38 combined sacks, hits, and hurries as a pass rusher. Still, the Chargers view Liuget as a building block for their defense. The former No. 18 overall pick just turned 25 in March.

The Union-Tribune San Diego reports Chargers RE Corey Liuget's new deal will pay him a little more than $10 million per season.

In other words, it'll be in line with the six-year, $62 million contract recently signed by Saints RE Cameron Jordan. The U-T San Diego reports a deal between the Chargers and Liuget is "imminent," and on Monday Liuget told reporters he hopes "it gets done within the next couple days or week." Liuget is currently under contract through 2015. His extension will span five seasons.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Chargers and RE Corey Liuget are "finalizing a lucrative long-term extension."

Indications are the deal will be announced within the next few days. Cameron Jordan of the Saints set the market this offseason for 3-4 defensive ends like Liuget, signing what amounts to a six-year, $62 million deal. Liuget has not been quite as prolific as Jordan, but figures to land something close.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Chargers are "quietly" working on an extension with contract-year RE Corey Liuget.

Per Rapsheet, the team has made a new deal a "priority." The No. 18 overall pick of the 2011 draft, Liuget has started all 16 games each of the past three seasons while generating 17 sacks. Liuget is still just 25, and his durability and ability to gobble up quality snaps are additional pluses.

Chargers RE Corey Liuget (concussion) is active for Sunday's Week 5 game against the Jets.

Liuget is ready to go just seven days after suffering his concussion against the Jags. Dwight Freeney (knee) is also active. WR Dontrelle Inman, CB Shareece Wright, C Rich Ohrnberger, OLB Jeremy Attaochu, OLB Reggie Walker, LB Manti Te'o and RB Ryan Mathews.

Chargers RE Corey Liuget suffered a concussion in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.

He did practice on a limited basis Wednesday, which suggests Liuget has already passed the first few steps of the NFL's protocol concussion testing. The Chargers play the Jets next. Liuget is on pace for 60 tackles and six sacks.
Wed, Oct 1, 2014 08:02:00 PM

Chargers RE Corey Liuget plans to play at 290 pounds this season.

He's dropped over ten pounds from last year, when Liuget turned in a disappointing campaign, dipping from 7.0 sacks to 5.5, and nine pass breakups to two. Still only 24 years old, Liuget could have a breakout season if DC John Pagano makes good on his promise to utilize more one-gap concepts in 2014.
Mon, Jun 23, 2014 02:03:00 PM

Chargers RE Corey Liuget underwent offseason shoulder surgery.

During the second preseason game last year, Liuget tore his labrum. He still started all 16 games, but his play tailed off following an encouraging 2012 campaign. Perhaps the shoulder issue was to blame. Liuget, already out of his sling, has resumed bench pressing and expects to be 100 percent for training camp.
Wed, May 7, 2014 12:02:00 PM

Chargers exercised RE Corey Liuget's team option for 2015.

It's worth $6.969 million. The move locks Liuget in for 2015, but is guaranteed for injury only. That means the Bolts could still move on from Liuget prior to the beginning of the 2015 league year, though it's unlikely they will. Under the terms of the CBA, he'll make the average of the third- through 25th-highest paid players at his position. Liuget appeared to be coming on in 2012, but was a less effective pass rusher and run stopper last season.
