Two key members of the San Diego Chargers are expected to return to the team in 2012, according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Center Nick Hardwick had contemplated retirement toward the end of the 2011 season, even though at age 30 he should have some productive football left in him.
Guard Kris Dielman's situation is not as certain, though he is said to be leaning toward a return next season, despite suffering a concussion and seizure following that head injury.
The Chargers, according to reports, are planning to release tackle Marcus McNeill to get some needed cap space.
