Chargers' Corey Liuget: Restructures contract
Two years into a five-year extension signed in 2015, Liuget has seen his production decline drastically as the defensive tackle has quietly been phased out of the rotation. After recording at least 40 tackles in three of his first four seasons, the 2011 first-round pick has failed to hit that mark in each of the last three years and has combined for a modest 4.5 sacks over that time span. Facing a four-game suspension to begin the year after violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances, there was some talk the Chargers may opt to release Liuget altogether, but Monday's announcement should quell those concerns for at least this season. Darius Philon is expected to start at defensive tackle to begin the campaign.
