The Chargers will announce this afternoon that they have released former Pro Bowl defensive end Marcellus Wiley.

Coach Marty Schottenheimer informed Wiley of the decision late this morning, saying the team believed it was time to move in another direction.

Wiley was the team's marquee free-agent signing in 2001, when he agreed to a potential $40 million deal that included a $9 million signing bonus. But since recording 13 sacks in 14 games and going to the Pro Bowl at the end of that season, he has totalled only nine sacks the past two seasons.

"I'm just disappointed at how things turned out," said Wiley, 29. "I want to redeem myself for the past two seasons, and obviously going to a new situation will give me a chance to do that."

The Chargers will save just over $1 million against this year's salary cap with the move. Wiley was scheduled to make $6.75 million in base salary this year.

The team has scheduled a news conference for 1:30 this afternoon at Chargers Park.



Not a bad pickup for Washington. They are also rumored to be fast after Jevon Kearse.

...Wouldn't be bad for Seattle, either.

...Although almost anyone would be an improvement at any position on their defensive line.

No he wouldn't be bad, but we already signed a DE today: Philip Daniels.

Yep, and I would much rather have Kearse on the other side than Wiley.


One thing I don't like about Snyder jumping the gun on free agency is that he misses some opportunities... I mean, we could be talking Kearse, Wiley, and Garcia instead of Daniels and Brunell....

Brunell and Daniels will be MVPs on their respective sides of the ball next season, y0.

You're right, though. I was thinking about that as soon as rumors of Garcia's release became more and more of a reality and I've always thought Jevon Kearse would end up in Washington (oops) - but even Wiley would be an improvement over Phillip Daniels.

he signs the wrong high priced players. Daniels is a curious move but he isnt bad. Brunell is a good move but it seems like he paid a ton for him. but atleast he is willing to spend to try and field a winner, i give him props for that.
