SD Re-signs Four Exclusive Rights Free Agents

The Chargers re-signed four exclusive rights free agents on Tuesday: Jeromey Clary, Brandon McKinney, Steve Gregory and Malcom Floyd. All but Floyd are expected to contribute to next year's squad. The signings leave Cletis Gordon as the only ERFA who is not under contract.

Jeromey Clary blossomed in his second year with the Chargers. After spending the 2006 season on the practice squad, Clary supplanted Shane Olivea in the starting lineup in Week 13. The Bolts went 5-0 with Clary as a starter, averaging 176 rushing yards per game.

Brandon McKinney also enjoyed a breakout sophomore season. He took over as the top backup behind nose tackle Jamal Williams, starting two games in Williams' stead and carving out a regular spot in the rotation. McKinney finished with 35 tackles in 14 games.

Steve Gregory made the move to safety last season after the Chargers released Bhawoh Jue at the end of training camp. Gregory, who is used primarily on special teams, saw some time in dime situations and finished with 11 tackles.

Malcom Floyd just completed his fourth year with the Chargers, although he only has two accrued seasons because of limited playing time. Floyd was replaced in the rotation by Legedu Naanee during the bye week last season and is unlikely to earn a roster spot with Eric Parker coming back healthy. Floyd caught seven passes for 97 yards last year.
