Dean was a two-time Pro Bowler with the Chargers and unofficially recorded nearly 100 career sacks.
  • Inducted into Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1996, Joiner caught 50-plus passes seven times and had 70 or more receptions in three seasons with the Chargers. Known for his excellent speed and precise route running, Joiner averaged 16.2 yards-per-catch and accounted for 12,146 yards and 65 touchdowns. He holds the team record for most career receptions by a wide receiver with 586 and ranks second for receiving yards with 9,203.
  • Mix was inducted into Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1979. In 10 seasons, he only had two holding penalties. Mix was known for excellent speed and outstanding downfield blocking. He was an eight-time All-Pro Selection (1960-64, '66-68). Mix made eight AFL All-Star games appearances (1962-69) and was named Chargers MVP in 1962.
