Former Chargers Tight End signs with Tennessee Titans

Veteran former Los Angeles Chargers tight end Nick Vannett has officially moved on and signed with the Tennessee Titans, the team announced via his X account.

The 6-foot-4, 257-pound journeyman, 31, was signed to a practice squad deal with Los Angeles last summer. He was added to the club’s active roster in November.

Vannett played sparingly for the Bolts last season, appearing in eight games. He caught just one reception on one target, for three yards.

Prior to the Chargers and Titans, the Ohio State product played for the Seattle Seahawks, Pittsburgh Steelers, Denver Broncos, New Orleans Saints and New York Giants. He also briefly signed with the Houston Texans practice squad in 2023.

It made little sense for him to linger in Los Angeles. He would have fought for third or fourth stringer minutes behind Will Dissly and Hayden Hurst, alongside Donald Parham Jr. and Stone Smartt.

Now in Tennessee, Vannett hopes to venture to what he hopes will be greener pastures and significantly more minutes.

LA is hoping for a much more successful home season under new head coach Jim Harbaugh and new general manager Joe Hortiz than it got with Vannett in 2023.
