Biography

On the first day of unrestricted free agency in 2017, the Chargers signed veteran left tackle Russell Okung to a four-year contract.

A former Pro Bowl standout and Super Bowl champion, Okung played his first six seasons with the Seattle Seahawks before suiting up for the Denver Broncos in 2016. He has started at left tackle all 100 career games he has played, including 12 in the postseason.

Okung has proven to be one of the NFL’s best left tackles since he entered the League in 2010. According to Stats, LLC., Okung has allowed just 24 sacks over his first seven seasons, fourth-fewest among left tackles who’ve made at least 70 starts.

Okung established himself as a reliable left tackle from the moment the Seahawks selected him in the first round (sixth overall) in the 2010 NFL Draft. He allowed the second fewest sacks (20) in the NFL among linemen with at least 70 starts during his tenure in Seattle. 

The 6-5, 310-pound tackle is also known for his run blocking. Over his first five seasons, the Seahawks boasted the NFL’s second-ranked rushing attack, averaging 135.2 yards per game. He was named to the Pro Bowl in 2012 after helping Marshawn Lynch run for a career-high 1,590 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Okung anchored an offensive line that guided the Seahawks to back-to-back Super Bowl appearances, including a 43-8 victory over the Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII.
