Conway joined the Chargers as an unrestricted free agent in 2000. His best season came in 2001, when he had 71 receptions for 1,125 yards and six touchdowns.

Conway made 57 catches for a team-high 852 yards and five touchdowns last year, but missed two games and parts of four others with a shoulder injury.

In three seasons with the Chargers, he had 181 receptions for 2,689 yards and 16 scores, and also rushed 17 times for 200 yards.

Fletcher began his tenure with the Chargers as a second-round pick out of Wisconsin in 1995. He was used both as a receiving and rushing threat during his eight seasons with the team.

Fletcher ranks 10th on the Chargers' all-time receptions list with 259 for 1,943 yards and 16 touchdowns. He also rushed 526 times for 1,871 yards and 10 scores.
