Jeromey Clary agreed to reduce his salary from $4.55M to $1.6M, which now gives the Chargers $2.95M in cap space, according to ESPN NFL Insider Field Yates.

Essentially Clary had to take a pay cut to remain on the team. It had been expected throughout the off-season that the Chargers were going to have to release Clary unless he took a pay cut, as before today he was the fourth-highest paid player on the roster.

  • Clary is currently on the physically unable to perform list, as he is still recovering from offseason shoulder and hip surgeries.

    Even if Clary was healthy I’m not sure if he would still be the team’s starting right guard, as I expect rookie Chris Watt or Johnnie Troutman to start at right guard throughout the season for the Chargers.

    Clary though is still a vital member of the team’s offensive line as he provides the Chargers with depth and versatility with his ability and experience to play every offensive line positions.

    Jeromey Clary was a key member of the Chargers offensive line last season. With the addition of D.J. Fluker the Chargers were able to move Jeromey Clary from right tackle to his more natural position at right guard. With Jeromey Clary at right guard the Chargers were able to better protect Philip Rivers and create more running lanes in the running game.
