Yesterday, Chargers tight end Hunter Henry suffered a torn ACL and will miss the entire 2018 season. This is a major blow for the Chargers, especially since this was supposed to be the year they finally broke out. Henry, 23, caught 45 passes for 579 Yards and 4 TDs. He was even graded as the #2 tight end in 2017 by Pro Football Focus. His play was good enough to convince the Chargers that it was time to move on from future hall of Famer Antonio Gates(more on that in a second). Now, that’s all gone and Phillip Rivers’ best red zone threat is gone. The only capable tight end on the roster for the Chargers currently is Virgil Green, who profiles best as a tight end #2. Green is an excellent blocking tight end, so it would make sense for the Chargers to pursue a receiving tight end. The three that make the most sense are Julius Thomas, Mercedes Lewis, and of course Antonio Gates. Gates, 37, saw his production go way down with only 316 receiving yards on 30 receptions and 3 TDs. However, he knows the system better than anyone, so it makes sense for the Chargers to bring him back. Julius Thomas, 29, is the youngest of these three, but isn’t much more productive. He had 41 receptions for 388 Yards and 3 TDs a year ago. The hope with Thomas would be that with a better quarterback (Blake Bortles and Jay Cutler were his last two QBs), he could regain the production he had when he was with the Broncos and Peyton Manning was his QB. The last option is Mercedes Lewis. Lewis, 34, brings a veteran presence, who like Gates, is a premier red zone threat. If Los Angeles wants to stay away from bringing Gates back, Lewis would be a good plan B. Overall, the Chargers offense took a major step back losing Hunter Henry. The best way to replace this would be to sign Julius Thomas, as under Phillip Rivers, could save his career. #nfl#football#tombrady#antoniobrown#leveonbell#drewbrees#juliojones#vonmiller#alvinkamara#robgronkowski#toddgurley#kirkcousins#camnewton#stefondiggs#blakebortles#benroethlisberger#carsonwentz#aaronrodgers#obj#odellbeckhamjr#dakprescott#ezekielelliott#russellwilson#larryfitzgerald#marcuspeters#steelers

🆕 The Redskins Tight Ends all come down to Jordan Reed. If he is healthy he is a Top 5 Player ya the position. His health also benefits Vernon Davis, who thrives so much more when Reed is playing rather than being the #1 guy. Nonetheless, Davis is still a very good backup, possibly the best backup Tight End in the league. Jeremy Sprinkle didn’t do much last year after being buried on the depth chart, but at the least he’ll be a good blocker for us this year. Hopefully his development comes along in terms of receiving ability. The team likes Manasseh Garner has he has a similar skill set to Niles Paul. Doubt he makes the roster but the team kept 4 Tight Ends last year so we’ll see. Matt Flanagan was a solid Blocking prospect. He’s a camp body but could develop so much as a blocker than team may want him around on the Practice Squad. Overall a pretty solid group taking into account Reed’s history. However if fully healthy, Reed and Davis are debatably the top Tight End duo in the NFL. — #WashingtonRedskins#HTTR #RedskinsNation#RedskinsCountry 📸:@httr.nation #redskinscountry #redskinsallday #fedexfield #redskinsnation #burgundyandgold #redskins #redskinsfans #nfceast #joshnorman #redskins4life #goskins #kirkcousins #redskinsrally #redskinspride #redskinsfamily #redskinsfan #goredskins #washingtonredskins #redskinsbaby #jaygruden #joshdoctson
