Chargers announce four-year deal with Melvin Ingram

The Chargers beat the deadline for a long-term deal with Melvin Ingram by more than a month.

The team announced they had agreed to a four-year deal with their franchise-tagged pass-rusher.

Ingram hadn’t been around for the start of the team’s voluntary workouts, but should be happy to show up now. He should make his debut as a newly-rich Charger this week when they have their mandatory minicamp.

Generally, deals with tagged players push up to the July 15 deadline for long-term contracts, but the Chargers were able to avoid such drama easily.

The former first-round pick overcame injuries and has 18.5 sacks the last two seasons, and will pair with defensive end Joey Bosa to give them a pair of young defensive stars for the foreseeable future.

    20th in passing yards allowed yes, but…

    Tied for 1st in interceptions, and 6th in passer efficiency allowed, and 8th in fewest TD passes allowed.

    It’s a similar dear to the one Chandler Jones got. For that kind of money, I’d *much* rather have Chandler Jones.

    Ingram will fit right in at the Chargers soccer stadium full of fans rooting for the other team.

    These “edge rush specialists” and their contract are getting ridiculous, remember when CAR was paying Stewart and Williams all that money back when RBs where being giving those sick contracts, yeah, boy how the caracal turns, right.

    Next “hot” position is going be these freak safeties that they are developing from pop warner. give it about another 5-7 years.
