Marcus Mason/RB - While he's hardly played, Mason will still get a good shot to play with Chargers because they have no depth at running back.
Nathan Vasher/CB - He'll compete for a nickel role with his new team.
Donald Strickland/CB - He fits in as a dime back.
Charlie Whitehurst/QB - Despite not ever throwing a pass in four seasons with the Chargers, the Seattle Seahawks gave up quite a bit to acquire him.
LaDainian Tomlinson/RB - He clearly is on his last legs, but will handle 8-10 carries/game with the New York Jets.
Michael Bennett/RB - The veteran fits in as a third back.
Kassim Osgood/WR - He will finally get a chance to be a receiver with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Chargers will miss his role on special teams.
Brandon Manumaleuna/TE - The veteran blocker will act as a third offensive tackle with the Chicago Bears.
Eric Ghiaciuc/C - He found a backup job with the Cleveland Browns.
Dennis Norman/C - The journeyman interior lineman still has enough in the tank to find a backup job by the start of training camps in August.
Jon Runyan/OT - He apparently has retired and has become a politician. Can you believe that?
Jamal Williams/DT - His release was a small surprise, but he found new home with the Denver Broncos.
Dontarrious Thomas/LB - He never played in a game for the Chargers.
Marques Harris/LB - He was primarily a special teams player.
Antonio Cromartie/CB - The team got tired of his underachieving play the past few seasons. Antoine Cason will take over.
Pre-Draft Team Needs
Running Back - With Tomlinson moving on, this position becomes an obvious need. In fact, they really don't have a true backup since Darren Sproles is more of a change of pace back.
Nose Tackle - With the Williams' release, there's a huge hole in the middle of their front-three.
Defensive End - Veteran Jacques Cesaire is a solid rotational player, but they could look to upgrade here.
