As Hunter Henry’s fifth season draws nearer, there is little uncertainty.
Chargers applying the franchise tag to Henry and he is looking for a long-term agreement.
Even so, the tight end of the talented likes to advance as far as 2020 is concerned whether it is under the tag or as an extension recipient.
“I don’t think it’s okay,” Henry said SiriusXM NFL Radio plays under the tag if a long-term pact is not held. “Obviously, I think I want to get something done; only security, and long-term and only with the team and franchise. It’s another year of playing football, mate, that’s how I see it.”

Coming without doubt his best season so far, where he posted the highest career of 55 catches and 652 yards received, Henry insisted he enjoyed playing for Los Angeles and was excited about Bolt ‘prospects for the upcoming campaign. Therefore, playing under the tag will not be a nuisance and no detention is mentioned.
“I think I’m just waiting for any challenge,” Henry said. “I can go there and play football with the people I have been doing for several years now and I get another chance to go there and do it. Whatever the situation, I will look forward to going out there with this squad. “I am really looking forward to this team and the potential and what we will aim for this year in the 2020 season.”
According to Henry, there had been a previous conversation about the extension, even though there had not been any lately. While playing under the label is fine by him, he is optimistic that the temperature of Southern California is heating up, so is the contract talks.

“Obviously, he chose the first and sixth rounds for a reason,” Henry said.
The 25-year-old Henry also radiates positive light on veteran Taylor, too.
“I also really believe in Tyrod, so I’m looking forward to seeing what he will bring to us,” Henry said.
