The San Diego Chargers released veteran fullback Le'Ron McClain on Tuesday, clearing $2.5 million in salary cap space.

The Chargers also released cornerbacks Derek Cox and Johnny Patrick.

The 29-year-old McClain, who only played 154 snaps on offense last year and only had 11 rush attempts for 32 yards, was scheduled to enter the final season of his three-year contract. He played in 34 games for the Chargers in two seasons, including playoffs. He totaled 25 carries for 74 yards and 10 catches for 22 yards.

Cox joined the team as an unrestricted free agent from Jacksonville in 2013. Last season, he played in 18 games, including playoffs. In the regular season, Cox recorded 39 tackles and six passes defensed.

Patrick started four of the 13 games he played in 2013, recording 36 tackles and an interception. He ended the season on the reserved-injured list due to an ankle injury.
