Chargers Sign 20 Undrafted Free Agents

The Chargers have added 20 undrafted free agents, according to U-T San Diego. On the list are LSU QB Jarrett Lee, Houston RB Mike Hayes, six receivers, three offensive linemen and three defensive backs. All that remains is to see if one or more makes the final 53-man roster; at least one UDFA has made the team's final roster in each of the last 15 seasons.

San Diego has a history of developing undrafted free agents. Current Chargers such as Antonio Gates, Malcom Floyd and Jacques Cesaire first joined the team as UDFAs; those three have combined to play more than 20 years in the league.

Recent prominent Chargers who entered the league undrafted include Kris Dielman, Stephen Cooper and Kassim Osgood.

Last season, Georgia OLB Darryl Gamble made the team as an UDFA. He played in five games, contributing mostly on special teams.

Here is this year's list of candidates looking to follow in Gamble's footsteps.
