Jeromey Clary (born November 5, 1983 in Norfolk, Nebraska) is an American football offensive tackle for the San Diego Chargers of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Chargers in the sixth round of the 2006 NFL Draft. He played college football at Kansas State.

Clary's Career

Clary was having one of the best seasons of his career in 2009 when it ended early as result of a serious ankle injury late in the Chargers’ Nov. 22 game at Denver. He had started the first 10 games and the line was collectively playing some of its best football when the injury struck. In fact, the Bolts rushed for a season-high 203 yards and didn’t give up a single sack in the Broncos game.

Clary spent his entire offseason in San Diego and fans should expect a full recovery for the 2010 season.

Clary’s career took off in 2007. A reserve most of the season, Head Coach Norv Turner inserted Clary into the starting lineup at right tackle in early December to give the team’s struggling running game a spark. Over the final five games, the Chargers rushed for 880 yards and eight touchdowns. Not surprisingly, the Bolts went 5-0 during that stretch.

Clary and wife, Breanna, had their first child, son Cannon, in March 2009. Besides being a dad, Clary’s hobbies include playing golf and spending time at the beach.
