Chargers Jeromey Clary retires after 9 seasons

Today the San Diego Chargers said goodbye to a very solid player. Jeromey Clary retired from football after nine seasons.

Clary joined the Bolts as a sixth-round pick (187th overall) in the 2006 NFL Draft out of Kansas State. He started 93 of the 103 regular season games he played, with the majority coming at right tackle before moving to guard in 2013. Clary is looking forward to spending time with his family.

“Honestly, it has been a long time coming now with the two hip injuries,” he said. “San Diego was a great place to play, and I couldn’t have asked for a better organization to play for. All the coaches and all the players I was with, and the friendships I’ve built … I’m honored to have played for an organization like this. It means the world to me. I’ve processed this decision a lot and gone through it a lot, and to be honest with you, I’m really excited about the future. I look forward to getting back to Texas and being around my family.”
