  Chargers | Hunter Henry could receive transition tag    Tue Jan 21, 11:16 PM

Impending free-agent TE Hunter Henry is believed to be a candidate for the transition tag if he and the Los Angeles Chargers can't reach a long-term agreement before the start of free agency, according to sources via Pro Football Network's Tony Pauline.

Footballguys view: The transition tag is going to be roughly worth about $9.2 million in 2020. Teams have the same right of first refusal as with franchise tags but do not receive any draft choice compensation for declining to match an offer sheet.

  Chargers | Melvin Gordon expected to move on    Wed Jan 8, 01:11 AM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon is 'unlikely to return' to the club in 2020, in the opinion of ESPN's Eric D. Williams. Gordon is set to become an unrestricted free agent.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Gordon held out to get a new contract with the Chargers in 2019 but to no avail. The Chargers even tried to trade Gordon but could not get any interest. The former first-round pick (2015) only has one 1,000-yard season to his credit and has battled the injury bug during his career. He'll get some interest but the market may not be as hot for his services as he'd want. Fantasy GMs have are best to take a wait-and-see approach with Gordon to see where he lands before getting too excited or dismayed about his 2020 potential.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers not considering retirement    Sun Dec 29, 05:15 PM

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers said he is not considering retirement at this point and would be willing to play for another team next season.

Footballguys view: The Chargers have a huge decision with Rivers going to free agency and appearing to be decline this season. Tyrod Taylor is under contract at a very reasonable five million dollars next year and the team could draft a quarterback. They could also opt for a different starter depending who becomes available via free agency or the draft.
