Chargers Cut OT Shane Olivea

Olivea, 26, has been regarded by some league personnel evaluators as one of the NFL's most consistent right tackles, a position that has lacked quality leaguewide the past few seasons. Despite his low-round draft status, Olivea earned a starting job as a rookie in 2004 and started all 16 games that season.

The former Ohio State lineman has missed only two of a possible 59 games, one in '05 because of a sprained knee, and the Sept. 23 game this season when his back stiffened.

Only 15 months ago, Chargers officials thought enough of Olivea to identify him as one of the nucleus players for their future and proactively signed him to a six-year, $20 million contract that runs through the 2011 season. The deal included $7.5 million in bonuses.
