The Los Angeles Chargers have made another move toward building the trenches by signing former Seattle Seahawks tight end, Will Dissly. The Bolts and Dissly inked a three-year deal worth $14 million total, with $10 million being guaranteed. Dissly, 27, is widely known for his ability to assist as a blocker in the run game. The Chargers' run game was not good in 2023, ranking 25th in the league and averaging a dismal 96.6 yards per game.



Dissly, a fourth-round draft pick in 2018 out of the University of Washington, is changing teams for the first time in his career after the Seahawks released him on March 5. Dissly was the second Seattle tight end to change teams after Colby Parkinson signed with the Los Angeles Rams.

The Montana native spent six seasons in Seattle under coach Pete Carroll. Dissly was an elite pass-blocking tight end along with being a formidable threat in the pass game. Dissly saw major success during his tenure in Seattle, especially with Russell Wilson. Last season he logged 17 receptions for 172 yards and one touchdown. 2023 was his lowest output of yards and receptions since his rookie year in 2018. It will be interesting to see how he is used in the passing game under new coach Jim Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Greg Roman. Obviously, he is being brought to Los Angeles for his run-blocking ability.


Editor's Note: This article was updated to remove information about tight end Gerald Everett remaining with the Los Angeles Chargers. Everett agreed to a two-year, $12 million contract with the Chicago Bears on March 12.
