Last year, the Chargers kept tight end Hunter Henry around with the franchise tag. This year, there’s still a chance that they’ll keep Henry with a new contract.

Henry recently told TMZ.com that he could still return to the Chargers, even though he wasn’t tagged for a second straight year.

The main attraction would seem to be Justin Herbert, the quarterback Henry dubbed his favorite.

“I love Herbie,” Henry said. “That’s my guy.”

Whether Henry remains the Chargers’ guy remains to be seen. A second-round pick in 2016, Henry has caught 196 passes for 2,232 yards and 21 touchdowns in five seasons. He missed all of 2018 with a torn ACL. In 2020, he had a career-high 60 receptions.

  1. Averages 50 catches, 550yds and 5 TD”s a year. Pretty good production and a security blanket for a young stud QB. Telesco, pay the man!!!

  2. Maybe the Chargers like what they have in Donald Pharham. Was an undrafted young kid that finished the season with 3 TDs on 10 receptions. Henry is still solid but don’t overpay him.
