3. Hunter Henry

Another player whose future with the team is undecided. Hunter Henry is playing on the franchise tag this season and has had a fairly decent season with Justin Herbert under center.

I think it is time to realize that Henry’s ceiling probably is not as high as we all touted but that does not mean that he has a low ceiling. Henry fits somewhere in as the eighth-tenth best tight end and that is completely fine. He just is not the top-five pass-catching tight end that we thought he could be.

The most important thing for Henry this season is that he has stayed healthy and that really what he needs to “finish strong” with to end the year. Henry is going to produce at the same level that he has his entire career and we can almost expect that at this point.

Henry needs to stay healthy to finish the season. Not only will Henry get more money if he stays healthy but he will probably stay as a Charger as well as the team should be concerned with keeping Herbert’s weapons alongside him.

If Henry gets hurt then I think he will signs elsewhere. Some other team will still pay a decent premium for Henry because of his consistent level of play and the Chargers will probably back off as the entire test this season with the franchise tag is whether he can stay healthy.
