Bolts Extend David Binn, Release Greg Bracey
Binn earned a Pro Bowl nod after the 2007 season, when he was joined in Hawaii by kicker Nate Kaeding. The success of both Kaeding and punter Mike Scifres is directly related to Binn's pinpoint accuracy.
"Having someone like Dave to go to, talk to and ask questions to and to just have around helps out so much," Scifres said. "It's so much more relaxing knowing that you've got someone that's been to the Super Bowl and been around the block. He makes it easy."
Binn was one of four starters set to enter the final year of his contract in 2008. Another member of that group, Clinton Hart, signed a new five-year deal earlier this offseason.
That leaves DE Igor Olshansky and RG Mike Goff as the only prominent players left with lame-duck status. The team is currently working on a new deal for Olshansky. Goff, 32, will likely not be back as the Bolts have Scott Mruczkowski waiting in the wings.
The Chargers announced the release of Greg Bracey (6'2", 215 pounds), a rookie receiver from Missouri. He was replaced on the roster by journeyman Marco Thomas, an undrafted rookie in 2007 who's spent time with the New York Giants, Oakland Raiders and New York Jets.
Thomas played his college ball at Western Illinois, giving the Chargers two former Leathernecks; Scifres graduated from Western Illinois in 2005.
