SS Clinton Hart Released by the San Diego Chargers

The Associated Press: Chargers release Hart, sign Scott
The Chargers released starting strong safety Clinton Hart on Wednesday in order to sign defensive tackle Ian Scott. The Chargers need depth on the defensive line due to the loss of tackle Jamal Williams, out for the season with a triceps injury.

Chargers cut Hart, sign DT Ian Scott
With an ailing and struggling defensive line and a key Monday Night matchup with Denver fast-approaching, the Chargers signed free agent defensive tackle Ian Scott on Wednesday.

The five-year veteran has 95 tackles and two sacks in a career spent mostly with the Chicago Bears. He was a member of the Chargers roster for four games in 2008 but saw limited action.

To make room for Scott, San Diego cut Clinton Hart, who has started 33 games at safety since 2007. He has 16 tackles in four games for a unit that ranks 12th against the pass and has come under a great deal of criticism.
