Doug Flutie has been sent ramblin' and scramblin' once again, and this time it might be for good.

The San Diego Chargers released Flutie on Friday, the latest move in the quarterback's roundabout 20-year career that has taken him through eight teams in three professional leagues.

The 42-year-old Flutie will always be remembered for the desperation pass against Miami that helped him win the 1984 Heisman Trophy with Boston College. While that play earned him legendary status that lingers to this day, he struggled for success in the NFL because there were always questions about his 5-foot-10 size.

Flutie, a fan favorite wherever he's played, had two years left on his Chargers contract and was due a $350,000 roster bonus on Tuesday. Counting that bonus, he was to earn $1.35 million in 2005.

Flutie has seemed to have been around forever, remember the "Flutie Flakes"?


With the money they're paying Drew Brees and Philip Rivers, there's no way you can have your 3rd string QB making that kind of money, especially now in the salary cap era.

Hey, he's had a great career, I hope he does find a place to be a #2 guy, I'm sure he's still got another 2-3 years in him.
