  • Chargers' Donald Parham: Returning to Chargers

    Parham and the Chargers agreed to a contract Friday, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

    Parham will return to Los Angeles after testing the open market. The tight end has spent the first three seasons of his career with the team, reeling in 10 catches for 130 yards and a score over six games in 2022. Parham will provide quarterback Justin Herbert with another familiar target in 2023.

  • Donald Parham: Gets to test open market

    Parham is slated to become an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year Wednesday with the Chargers declining to offer him an RFA tender, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    Parham and Los Angeles weren't able to come to terms on a potential extension, giving the 25-year-old an opportunity to sign elsewhere. The 6-foot-8 tight end has developed into a solid No. 2 option, so he should have a fairly competitive market as a free agent. For the Chargers, meanwhile, the tight end position begins to look like a clear need if Parham indeed inks with another club.

  • Chargers' Donald Parham: Not expected to be tendered

    The Chargers are not expected to tender Parham ahead of free agency, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Parham and Los Angeles reportedly had talks about a potential extension, but the two sides have been unable to agree to terms. That sets up the depth tight end, who appeared in just six games last season due to injuries, to search for a new role elsewhere. The 25-year-old shouldn't have much difficulty earning a reserve gig on the open market.

  • Chargers' Donald Parham: Season limited by injuries

    Parham caught 10 of his 12 targets for 130 yards and touchdown during the 2022-23 season.

    Parham appeared in just six games as he battled various injuries throughout the season. Despite the limited playing time, Parham was still the most productive tight end on the roster aside from Gerald Everett. Everett's a restricted free agent this offseason and it'll be interesting to see if the big-bodied target will be brought back.

  • Chargers' Donald Parham: First TD of 2022

    Parham caught his only target for a three-yard touchdown in Sunday's 31-10 win over the Rams.

    Sunday marked the first touchdown for Parham this season. It's been a bit surprising to see the 6-foot-8 behemoth not used more in the red zone, but that's likely a credit to the sheer dominance of running back Austin Ekeler, who tallied another red-zone score in the aforementioned win. Parham once again saw 20-plus offensive snaps, marking the third straight week the tight end saw a relevant role since his return from injured reserve.

  • Chargers' Donald Parham: Continues to draw downfield targets

    Parham caught one of his two targets for eight yards in the 20-3 win over the Colts on Monday.

    Parham continues to be a target in the team's intermediate-to-deep passing attack, as the big-bodied pass catcher had a 20-plus yard reception wiped out due to a holding penalty. Parham might not see many targets and doesn't see enough consistent playing time to warrant fantasy consideration, but it's clear the Chargers want to get him involved downfield for explosive plays

  • Chargers' Donald Parham: Snares three passes in return

    Parham caught all three of his targets for 35 yards in the 17-14 win Sunday over the Titans.

    It's been a disappointing campaign for Parham, for many managers had aspirations of him being a fantasy difference maker after positive buzz following a strong preseason. The 25-year-old's latest stretch of injuries -- first with a concussion and then a hamstring injury that forced the big-bodied target to land on injured reserve -- ultimately cost Parham a total of seven games, but Sunday's return was an immediate reminder of the aforementioned potential. While blocking specialist Tre' McKitty still wound up out-snapping Parham (22 to 21), the former XFL tight end could be an interesting option if Gerald Everett were to miss any time.

  • Chargers' Donald Parham: Comes off IR

    The Chargers activated Parham (hamstring) from injured reserve Saturday.

    Parham's 2022 campaign has been marred by numerous health concerns. First, a hamstring issue delayed his season debut to Week 5. After Week 6 action, Parham entered the concussion protocol and sat out Week 7. Following the team's Week 8 bye, he picked up another hamstring issue that forced him to IR. Now seemingly healthy for the first time in two months, Parham will have four potential appearances to close out the regular season as the nominal No. 2 tight end behind Gerald Everett.

  • Chargers' Donald Parham: Cleared to practice

    The Chargers designated Parham (hamstring) to return from injured reserve Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of reports.

    Wednesday's transaction opens a 21-day window for the Chargers to add Parham back to the active roster, after he missed each of the team's last six games with a hamstring issue. Once it's been medically determined that the 25-year-old is ready for game action, he'll likely compete for rotational snaps with Tre' McKitty and Stone Smartt behind starter Gerald Everett.

  • Chargers' Donald Parham: Should return to practice soon

    Coach Brandon Staley said Monday that Parham (hamstring) should return to practice at some point this week, Bridget Condon of NFL Network reports.

    Parham has been on IR since the beginning of November, but it appears he could be nearing a return to practice. Once he's designated to return, the Chargers will have a 21-day window to add him to the active roster.

  • Chargers' Donald Parham: Lands on IR

    Parham (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

    The 2022 campaign is quickly shaping up to be a lost season for Parham. The behemoth of a tight end missed the first four games of the regular season due to a hamstring injury and finally was activated in Week 5, only to suffer a concussion the following week. While the veteran managed to clear concussion protocol Thursday, it appears as if Parham once again will be forced to miss a large duration of time thanks to a hamstring issue. He'll be eligible to play in four weeks.
