Hunter Henry

ESPN says: Los Angeles Chargers

Bolt Beat says: Los Angeles Chargers

Henry is a stud. He’s a great route runner, catches everything thrown his way and can help out in the running game as a blocker. He’s a complete tight end and was worth using a second-round pick on. However, he’s missed a lot of time due to injuries.

Out of a potential 62 games to this point (including the playoffs), Henry has suited up for just 38 of them. That’s not great and it has led to him not really having that signature season yet. As a fourth-year player, Henry will enter free agency but he’s really only played about two and a half seasons with the team.

That makes it difficult to decide what to do with him, but Yates sees the Chargers re-signing him and I would have to agree. He’s still young enough and his best days on the field are behind him. His injury history makes giving him a big deal risky, but athletic, do-it-all tight ends don’t grow on trees.

Henry has also bounced back from his early-season injury this year and should still finish with his best season in terms of receptions. He will be back with the team.
