Former Dolphin restructures to stay in San Diego

The San Diego Chargers signed quarterback A.J. Feeley to a new restructured contract that runs through the 2007 season. The Chargers acquired Feeley last season along with a 2006 sixth-round draft pick from the Miami Dolphins in exchange for quarterback Cleo Lemon.

Feeley served as the number-three quarterback for the Chargers¹ final 10 games, but did not take any snaps.

"Restructuring A.J.¹s contract allowed us to keep him with us," said General Manager A.J. Smith. "He was only with us a short time last season, but we like the way he works and prepares. His experience in the league is evident and that¹s a huge benefit for the quarterback position. We¹re extremely pleased to be able to work this out with A.J."

Prior to joining the Chargers, he started eight games and appeared in three more with the Dolphins in 2004. Feeley also played three seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles (2001-03). When starting quarterback Donovan McNabb was injured in 2002, Feeley started five games and earned a victory in four of the five starts. He joined the Eagles as a fifth-round draft choice in 2001. In 18 career games played, he has started 10 games and is 5-5 as a starter.
