Current Roster by Position

Posted by Christopher Smith on July 14, 2010 – 11:24 AM

San Diego’s players, coaches and staff have more than two weeks to get some sun, relax with family and take a road trip between workouts and planning.

Training camp begins in full on July 30. That’s 16 days from now. NFL teams can carry no more than 80 players into training camp.

The Chargers, though, already are down to the roster limit of 80 after five draft picks, LB Donald Butler, SS Darrell Stuckey, DT Cam Thomas and QB Jonathan Crompton signed contracts.

That number doesn’t include RB Ryan Mathews, the last unsigned draft pick, or the three restricted free agents that haven’t signed their tenders, LT Marcus McNeil, WR Vincent Jackson and OLB Shawne Merriman. San Diego likely would need to make an additional roster move if and when those players agree to contracts.

You’ll note a two-week series that began yesterday on Chargers.com to preview each position, but here’s a breakdown of the current roster.

Quarterbacks (3) – Crompton, Philip Rivers, Billy Volek.

Running backs (5) – Curtis Brinkley, Mathews*, Marcus Mason, Shawnbrey McNeal, Darren Sproles.

Fullbacks (3) – Jacob Hester, Billy Latsko, Mike Tolbert.

Wide Receivers (11) – Seyi Ajirotutu, Gary Banks, Buster Davis, Malcom Floyd, Richard Goodman, Jackson*, Legedu Naanee, Josh Reed, Ernest Smith, Bryan Walters, Jeremy Williams.

Tight ends (6) – Richie Brockel, Dedrick Epps, DajLeon Farr, Antonio Gates, Randy McMichael, Kris Wilson.

Offensive linemen (15) – Brady Bond, Corey Clark, Jeromey Clary, Kris Dielman, Brandyn Dombrowski, Tyronne Green, Jeff Hansen, Nick Hardwick, Ryan McDonald, McNeil*, Scott Mruczkowski, Ryan Otterson, Nick Richmond, Tra Thomas, Louis Vasquez.

Defensive linemen (10) – Ryan Bingham, Alfonso Boone, Luis Castillo, Jacques Cesaire, Antonio Garay, Travis Johnson, Derrick Jones, Vaughn Martin, Ogemdi Nwagbuo, Thomas.

Linebackers (14) – Antwan Applewhite, Darry Beckwith, Butler, Kevin Burnett, Stephen Cooper, Larry English, James Holt, Brandon Lang, Merriman*, Mike Nixon, Shaun Phillips, Brandon Siler, Jyles Tucker, Kion Wilson.

Cornerbacks (7) – Antoine Cason, Brandon Hughes, Dante Hughes, Quentin Jammer, Traye Simmons, Donald Strickland, Nathan Vasher.

Safeties (5) – Steve Gregory, Paul Oliver, C.J. Spillman, Stuckey, Eric Weddle.

Specialists (5) – David Binn, Cort Johnson, Nate Kaeding, Nick Novak, Mike Scifres.

*Currently does not count toward 80-player roster limit.

Stay true and keep pounding,

    as a charger fan, l am not thinking we should force people to be on our winning team. They want to go somewhere and and lose because it is about the dollar to them, then byebye. l think we should take Merriman and Jackson and trade them for top of the line WR and move on. Those 2 are nothing but problems anyways, getting arrested during the season and such. Let us boot them and move on.

    It’s a shame when we get the right combo of players together to make a true run at the Super Bowl, and then you find out who the real team players are.As a fan for over 35 years I have been through this so many times it depressing. The 3 players holding out are killing the FANS who stick with them through thick and thin…A lot of us lost jobs, and worse…and they can’t get a few million more for playing football..At this rate we will never see a SB, we will always be an ” also ran “

    Fully agree with Bob. Jackson specifically comes off as a guy with a bad attitude. Get ride of him for a quality pick or WR. I’m not as worried as other about what will happen if he doesn’t play. Jackson was nothing special, but stepped up. If he leaves, someone else will step up. Everyone is replaceable.

    ya bob is right. lets get players that is not all about money lets get players that what to play the game we will never get to the super bowl with players that want the money. players need hart. lets go bots

    To Jackson: If not for the Chargers you would probably not be in the NFL right now. Get real you were born and raised in the Chargers organization. You are making a lot of money and you are an idiot for getting busted multipule times. You owe this organization and the faithful fans. Get to work, you and the other ones holding out or get lost. The NFL can make it without you.

    Chargers need to sign Jackson to a long term deal, he has proved himself as one of the best WR while playing for less its time his gets paid like the rest of the WR’s in the league. When the number 2 running back is making more than your number 1 WR and your WR is one of the best in the NFL thats a problem.

    Christopher, keep up the good work with the blog and articles. So far, you’ve done a great job.

    mathews should bring a new type of running game to our potent passing game.at six foot he should also be somewhat of a headache to cover so if jackson continues to holdout then we don’t really have a choice so we let the drunk go and sign mcneil merriman and give starting receiver to floyd pick up maybe T.O FOR ONE YEAR and see what happens

    Lets just throw in the towel now, AJ doesnt seem to care about winning a super bowl, so we should all give up too! theres almost 30 million in money that has been free’d up, give out best players contracts old man, this isnt about your ego, this is about the team! GOD, i hate being a charger fan right now

    we need the t.o.!! ? dont tell me he would not come cheap or that rivers couldnt yell at him on the side line when at the end of the year he “only” got 120 receptions and 1300 yards…..

    I think that if the chargers where to sign terrel owens that would put our franchise that much closer to a chance at the super bowl.
    I dont want to here all that “t.o is a poison to the franchise BS” that man knows that if he does get another chance at playing in the nfl he’ll show how much he has matured and grew up.
    and with the loss of vincent jackson i think that t.o would be a great replacement and just imagine the amazing connetion that can be formed between phillip rivers and terrel owens.
    I can only hope that SOMEONE in the chargers staff gets their head out their southsides and realize the potential of terrel owens being a charger before another team takes the chance with him.

    The playoffs are not an option for the chargers this year its either super bowl or the season was a waste.
    We to hurry and get to the super bowl while we still are the ‘BIG DOGS’ of our division.
    Because the cheifs broncos and even the raiders are getting better as much as that hurts to say and we need to quickly take advantage of winning our division every year because those teams are getting better every year and what major moves have the chargers made this off-season???.
    we let so many good players slip under our radar and go to other teams we need to get more relentless and make more moves just like rex ryan.
