Chargers' Hunter Henry 'fine' playing under the franchise tag
Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry is reportedly "fine" playing out the 2020 season on the franchise tag.
There were rumors early in the offseason that the Chargers might let Henry walk, but the team did eventually label him with the franchise tag. Henry is one of the top tight ends in the league when healthy, and will be a valuable asset for both of the Chargers' two top quarterbacks.
numberFire projects Henry for 66.84 receptions, 730.80 receiving yards and 5.82 receiving touchdowns in 2020, good for a finish as their TE6 on the season. Even in an injury-dampened 2019 season, Henry still graded out as PFF's 11th-best tight end, and is now another year removed from the ACL injury that held him out of the 2018 season.
