No. 5: Pete Holohan

Pete Holohan was a seventh-round pick of the Chargers in 1981 and played for the team for seven seasons. Though he only played with the Los Angeles Rams for three seasons, that’s when photographers liked him, cause those are the only pictures to be found.

But in seven seasons with the Chargers, he was a productive tight end.

During his first two years with the team, he was mainly a backup but he caught 23 passes in 1983 before having his best year with the Chargers in 1984. That season, he caught 56 passes for 734 yards and one touchdown.

For his career in San Diego, he caught 171 passes for 2,073 yards. He only found the end zone seven times, which almost knocked him off this list, but only four tight ends in team history have caught more passes than him.

Sievers had more touchdowns with the team at 16, so if you wanted to put him in this spot over Holohan, there shouldn’t be much of an argument. Holohan was just a little bit better as an all-around player, even if he showed a good portion of that with the Rams.
