East Lansing, Mich. – Former Michigan State tight end Matt Seybert found a new home on Friday afternoon.

The Los Angeles Chargers signed Seybert, who was a recent participant in the Spring League and an undrafted free agent in 2020.

Seybert committed to Buffalo in 2014 as a defensive end before transferring to Michigan State, where he became a two-year letterwinner.

After making the move back to tight end for his senior season in 2019, he started 11 contests for MSU while catching 26 passes for 284 yards and three touchdowns.

A two-star prospect coming out of high school, Seybert wasn't a well-known player, and after a solid senior campaign, he needed a productive pro day; however, he never had the chance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Yet, Seybert and many other Spartans were afforded another opportunity when former Michigan State director of player personnel Scott Aligo reached out to them, extending an invite to MSU's 2021 pro day.

"As we know, a lot of the borderline draft picks and guys that are gonna be priority free agents, they make their money and get their opportunity through Pro Day," MSU director of player engagement Darien Harris said in March. "Being able to have it this year, because we've got our protocols in place, is gonna be huge for our guys that are coming out this year and the guys from last year."
