On Friday, Kyle Boller signed a 1-year contract with the San Diego Chargers. He was going to have a chance to compete for a roster spot, and seemed genuinely excited about it.

"I think the sky's the limit for this team," said Boller after his first Chargers practice Friday evening. "To be down here with them, it's a true blessing."

On Saturday morning, Boller went to head coach Norv Turner and said he didn't want to play football any more, then Kyle Boller retired from the NFL.

It's one of the stranger developments you'll see in an NFL training camp, and that's saying something.

The Chargers are now left scrambling to find another backup to their injured backup.

There are quarterbacks out there that are still unsigned. Some names you may have heard of include Donovan McNabb, J.P Losman, Dennis Dixon, and A.J. Feeley, who spent part of the 2005 season with the Chargers but never saw game action.

Oh, and that Brett Favre guy is available, too.
