Summary

Henry returns to the Chargers on the franchise tag, but he'll likely be locked up long-term at some point this summer. When healthy, he's been one of the game's most dynamic receivers at the tight end spot and a worthy TE1. Dating back to 2016, among 28 tight ends with 150+ targets, only four (Rob Gronkowski, George Kittle, Vernon Davis, and Travis Kelce) have posted more yards per target. And he's a force near the goal line, scoring on 17 of his 136 career catches. He'll likely come at a small discount on draft day, too, considering his recent run of injuries. But none of them suggest future issues, and it was impressive to see him work back onto the field last year, losing just four games to a knee fracture. (May 2)

Chargers | Hunter Henry still hoping for extension (Sun May 24, 10:16 AM) - Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry said that he is 'fine' playing under the franchise tag for the 2020 season, although he would still like to agree to a long-term contract extension with the team. Henry said that contract talks have already taken place, although there have been no recent discussions.

Our View: Henry has signed his tender, so he's under a one-year, $10.6 million contract for the 2020 season. He's incredibly talented but has trouble staying healthy. We'll see how his injury history plays into contract negotiations. The NFL deadline for players with franchise tags to sign long-term deals is July 15.
