Dallas Cowboys trade defensive lineman Sean Lissemore to San Diego Chargers

Trades in the NFL are pretty rare, though, come the final few days of the 53-man roster crunch, you can often see a few names changing zip codes, which is exactly what happened with former Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Sean Lissemore.

The Cowboys traded Lissemore this morning to the San Diego Chargers for a 7th round pick in 2015, so says ESPN.

Per Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas:

Cowboys with another trade: deal DT Sean Lissemore to SD for 2015 seventh rounder, according to sources

Dallas reportedly felt that Lissemore wasn’t a good fit in their new 4-3 defense, something the Chargers were more than willing to accept given they run a 3-4 defense where Lissemore should fit perfectly.

Last year wasn’t the best season for Lissemore, but he found success in 2011, something the Bolts are hopeful he’ll find in Southern California. He’s expected to be the primary backup for both Kendall Reyes and Corey Liuget.

For a seventh round pick, the Chargers could have done much worse and for Dallas, I guess getting something is better than getting nothing.
