Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry on Friday, March 13, received the franchise tag.
Huddle Up: Henry finished 2019 with career highs in targets (76), receptions (55) and receiving yards (652) but still missed four games -- bringing his four-year total to 23. If he can stay reasonably healthy and the Bolts don't take a huge step back at quarterback, he'll be in the TE1 consideration this summer.

Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent TE Hunter Henry's new contract is a top priority this offseason, according to general manager Tom Telesco. 'We'll figure out all the finances, the cap and the performance, however it fits,' Telesco said. 'He's a draft pick of ours. As you know, our philosophy is to re-sign our own when we can.'
Huddle Up: Henry has battled injuries throughout his career, but he's delivered TE1 production when healthy. His value could take a bit of dip with the Chargers moving on from Philip Rivers, but he's still a top-10 option at the position.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry is a candidate to receive the franchise tag for the 2020 season, according to general manager Tom Telesco Tuesday, Feb. 25. Telesco added the goal remains to sign Henry to an extension and talks are continuing.
Huddle Up: Henry started and played 12 games in 2019 and finished the season with 55 receptions for 652 yards and five touchdowns. He'll remain a high-volume target in the Chargers offense if he stays in Los Angeles, but the team's murky QB situation could lower his value.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry caught five of his seven targets for 45 yards in a 24-17 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 16.
Huddle Up: It was actually one of Hunter's busier outings over the past month, and he had been held to just six total catches in the three previous games combined. Despite the downward trend, he's still a low-end starting option at a thin position.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry caught two passes for 29 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 15. He also lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: Henry put up big numbers for a while after returning from injury, but he has done very little over the last three weeks, and his fumble was one of seven Chargers turnovers in an ugly performance. Despite that, Henry is a TE1 that can't be left on the bench.
