Smith said the player to be named won't be high-profile.
The deal is pending a David Boston physical and a meeting with Dolphins management that could take place as early as Tuesday. Boston, with the help of agent Mitch Frankel, has agreed to a restructured contract that is loaded with incentives.
"The process went smooth and all sides are happy with the deal," Chargers General Manager A.J. Smith said in a team-released statement. "That's the essence of a good trade."
Espn.com reported Monday night that Boston's new 2003 base salary will be $535,000, although he can earn an additional $2.5 million just by being on the Dolphins' roster for each game. Boston can earn another $4 million in 2005 through a similar arrangement, the report said.
