Well, I didn't quite make it to 90 players with San Diego's current roster. I need some camp bodies to take the wear and strain off the 1's and 2's, and also sign a couple of vets to make this 7-9 team a playoff team. I was also not able to address the DT needs for the Chargers as I was filling in a lot of other holes on the O-line and at DB. So, I need 11 more bodies. I am way to into this process this year, but I think I would fill out the rest of the roster like this:

UDFA Alex Carder, WMU -- had some prolific yardage seasons at WMU
FA Trent Edwards -- Veteran presence to push Whitehurst

It's always a good idea to have extra arms in camp.

Tight ends
UDFA Philip Lutzenkirchen, Auburn -- Has some potential to be a well rounded TE. He was injured a good portion of the 2012 season. Let's see what's in the tank.
FA Dallas Clark playing across from gates in some 2 TE sets might be nice for Clark

Running Back
UDFA Chris Thompson, FSU -- A darren Sproles type back with a lot of speed. Bad injury derailed his 2012. He could at least be a gunner on ST. If he is healthy could be a contributor.

Defensive End
FA Lawrence Jackson, Detroit Lions -- I watched a lot of Lions football and he made a couple of impactful plays per game. Good rotational guy, has the size (271 lbs) to play the 3-4 DE, and shouldn't be too pricey.

Defensive Tackle
UDFA Darius Smith, NT, Miami -- Arriving at Miami as a highly-coveted JUCO recruit, Smith never quite made the impact most expected, but only so many human beings on the planet are built like him (335 lbs). - Dane Brugler,
FA Richard Seymour -- The Bolts could use him as a rotational guy, not wear him out. Also, the Chargers NEED another experienced DT on the roster as Cam Thomas is currently the only one.

FA Nick Barnett, Buffalo -- Solid contributor. Kevin Durant from the Lions could also play inside or outside for the Bolts if the Chargers don't sign.......
FA Brian Urlacher, Bears -- Let him wind down his hall of fame career in the sunshine. The Bolts need a presence on this D, he would provide it. If he has nothing left in the tank or is too expensive, Bradie James from the Texans would also be a fit.

FA Corey Lynch, Chargers -- My only re-signing, a nice special teams player. Also, Tanard Jackson comes off of suspension on August 31st and could start alongside Weedle.

OK, that's 90. I think the FA signed here won't break the bank, and this has some potential to give the Chargers a solid roster with some upside for the future.
