Chargers release O'Connell

The SportsXchange

The San Diego Chargers released quarterback Kevin O'Connell on Saturday.

O'Connell was signed July 29 after Kyle Boller decided to retire just after signing. The Chargers needed a quarterback in camp while Charlie Whitehurst was out with a strained MCL. Whitehurst returned Saturday.

O'Connell did not get into Thursday's game against Green Bay as rookie Jarrett Lee played the final three-plus quarters of the Chargers' 21-13 win.

O'Connell was a third-round pick of New England in 2008 out of San Diego State.
