  • Falcons' Joe Gaziano: Signs with Atlanta

    The Falcons signed Gaziano on Monday.

    Gaziano is now set to join Atlanta in 2023 following his three-season stint with the Chargers. The 280-pounder was limited to just five games played last season due to undisclosed injuries, but from Week 11-15, he operated as a rotational defensive lineman and amassed eight tackles and one sack in that span.

  • Joe Gaziano: Set for unrestricted free agency

    The Chargers did not extend Gaziano (undisclosed) a qualifying offer or tender, making him an unrestricted free agent this offseason, per the NFL's communications site.

    Gaziano appeared in just five games during the 2022 campaign from Week 11 through Week 15. In that time, the veteran defensive end saw limited playing time while recording just eight tackles (six solo) and one sack. Gaziano now enters free agency with the ability to negotiate and sign with another team during the offseason.

  • Chargers' Joe Gaziano: Placed on IR

    The Chargers placed Gaziano (undisclosed) on injured reserve Wednesday.

    Gaziano made five straight appearances from Week 11 through Week 15, totaling eight tackles and one sack. His lone sack came in the Chargers win over Tennessee, but Gaziano apparently also suffered an undisclosed injury during the contest. The severity of the issue remains unclear, but the third-year defensive end will be forced to miss at least four games after landing on IR, meaning he'll be eligible to return this season if the Chargers make the playoffs.

    Gaziano (ankle) is out Sunday against the Raiders.
