Chargers WR Danario Alexander signs RFA tender

Danario Alexander, Antonio Cromartie AP

Wide receiver Danario Alexander has signed his one-year contract offer from the Chargers, the club said Thursday. 

The Chargers tendered Alexander, who has had a history of knee issues, at the lowest level in restricted free agency. If the Chargers declined to match an offer sheet to Alexander, they would have received no compensation.

However, as is often the case in restricted free agency, nothing materialized, though the Browns did “internally” talk about the prospect of an offer sheet for the wide receiver, Adam Caplan of TheSidelineView.com reported Thursday.

After joining the club in October, the 24-year-old Alexander caught 37 passes for 658 yards and seven touchdowns in 10 games for San Diego in 2012.

    He was really good and genuinely stood out for the Chargers

    Those aren’t such bad stats. That translates to about 60 catches for 1,052 yards and 11 TDs in a full 16 game season. Why does it seem teams treated him like he’s got the plague?

    if he can build on the strong 2nd half of the season then the chargers really found something.

    and btw thanks for helpin me win my league man!

    Plus, that’s 17.5 yards/catch. And they almost didn’t tender him at all? Are you sure A.J. Smith is gone?

    If Rivers gets time in the pocket, this guy can stretch the field. If Alexander can stay healthy HE is the replacement for VJ….well, kind of…..

    DAx could be a Pro Bowl WR if he stays healthy.

    The San Diego Chargers Super Bowl Express is getting more steam up.

    only because of the many procedures on his knees, i was hoping my colts woulddve went after him, if his injuries are behind him, he could be beastly!!!

    Teams are/were wary of his knee. If he comes on strong out of the gate, SD would be wise to lock him up long-term, quick.

    He didn’t get any love because no one is going to do the Chargers work for free. San Diego already said they would match any reasonable offer. You’re not going to offer an unreasonable contract to a guy with 4 or 5 knee surgeries in the last few years. Everything about this makes sense, sorry.

    I am so glad this worked out. Alexander was the only bright spot in the Charger’s receiving corps last year. He started to really mesh well with Rivers at the end of the season. If he can stay healthy he can really be something special maybe not as special as Vincent Jackson but a real # 1 receiver. Now please put Robert Meachem out of his misery. The Saints new he was a #3 which is why they let him walk.

    I’m glad he’s back. He help stretch the field and with Vincent Brown coming back this year, this should be a good, young WR corp.

  13. carlsbadboltfan says: Apr 25, 2013 5:33 PM

    Really happy about this. Between him, Floyd & Donald Brown coming back, the Bolts WR core is really looking good.

    Now DRAFT O-LINE BEEF so that Rivers can throw to them.

    Those knees must be really bad if nobody had an offer sheet for his play.

    Love that name…DENARIOOOOOO

    Vincent brown not Donald brown. I’m not even a chargers fan

    Actually SD would be totally unwise to lock him up long term. Those knees won’t hold up for long.
