Cowboys with another trade: deal DT Sean Lissemore to SD for 2015 seventh rounder, according to sources— Todd Archer (@toddarcher) September 1, 2013
With back up defensive lineman Damik Scafe being placed on Injured Reserve, the Chargers were in desperate need of additional depth. Lissemore is available largely due to the defensive scheme change in Dallas this off season. He'll be moving back to his more natural 34 defensive end position after being beat out by Nick Hayden at 43 defensive tackle.
At 6'3", 315, Lissemore certainly has the size needed to hold up at the point of attack and he has successfully played both the 3 and 5 technique. Hopefully he won't need to play any significant snaps at nose tackle because he struggled there when filling in for Jay Ratliff in 2012.
Lissemore is signed through 2016 and according to Spotrac, his base salary in 2013 is $630,000.
And just for fun, according to Blogging the Boys' One.Cool.Customer, the Gaelic phrase tattooed on Lissemore's arm means "Nothing without effort."
To make room for Lissemore, the team has placed DE Damik Scafe on Injured-Reserve
