The Los Angeles Chargers today signed tight end Donald Parham Jr. to a multi-year contract.
Parham comes to Los Angeles after playing for the Dallas Renegades of the XFL. In his five games with Dallas, Parham was the league's top-performing tight end, posting 24 receptions for 307 yards and four touchdowns. Parham's 307 receiving yards were the third-best among all XFL players and he was the league's lone tight end to record a 100-yard performance.
Before his stint in the XFL, Parham spent the 2019 offseason with the Detroit Lions and Washington Redskins after going undrafted out of Stetson University. The 6-8, 240-pound tight end was a first-team All-American as a senior for the Hatters in 2018, catching 85 passes for 1,319 yards and 13 touchdowns — the best in each category that year by any FBS or FCS tight end.
