Quarterback Kevin O'Connell signed with the Chargers.
San Diego signed Kyle Boller to temporarily replace injured Charlie Whitehurst (knee), but Boller abruptly retired the following day.
A former star for San Diego State, O'Connell has spent time with the Patriots, Lions and Dolphins. Whitehurst is expected to miss about two weeks with a sprained MCL.
