The Chargers, who have been as quiet as a mouse this past free agent period, have finally made a move, signing veteran safety Clinton Hart to a long term deal. Hart came to the Chargers via waivers from the Eagles back in 2004. “I’m excited to be here and have another chance to help this team make a run” Hart told the North County Times. “The way I look at it, I’ve got five years to help them get a Super Bowl. I’ll do my best and do whatever I can to help this team get to that point.”
Hart is 30, and started every game last season for the Chargers in their secondary. Last year he had five picks, 85 tackles and one sack. The 16 starts is the most he’s started since he was an Eagle back in his rookie season of 2003 and started nine games. Terms of the deal with Hart were not disclosed, other than the deal runs though the 2012 season.
