It's an epic list, but except for Welker those players all left for financial reasons. And Welker passed through waivers, so as dumb as that move turned out to be, 31 other teams passed as well. That doesn't make the Chargers smart, far from it, but those cases are different from Shaun Phillips, who simply wore out his welcome.
