Analysis: Hardwick had been the Chargers' starter since his rookie season of 2004. Hardwick started all 136 games he played in, including 67 straight. He suffered a neck stinger in the 2014 opener and was placed on season-ending injured reserve. The Chargers clearly missed his veteran leadership. Due to injuries, four other players started at center last season. The 33-year-old Hardwick was in the final year of his contract.
