TAG: Los Angeles Chargers franchise Hunter Henry

Tight end Hunter Henry was given the franchise tag by the Los Angeles Chargers on Friday.

Based on the projected salary cap, Henry would be in line for a one-year franchise tender of $11 million. The deadline to apply the franchise tag is Monday.

The Chargers and Henry would have until July 15 to work out a long-term deal or he’d automatically be in line for the $11 million salary in 2020.

Henry, 25, will be catching passes from a new quarterback next year after Philip Rivers and the Chargers decided to mutually part ways.

Henry reached single-season career highs with 55 receptions and 652 receiving yards in 2019.
