The Chargers have signed tight end Hunter Henry to a four-year contract on Thursday, according to ProFootballTalk.com.
Financial details of the deal have yet to be released.
The team’s 2016 second-round draft selection was the John Mackey Award winner in 2015 while at Arkansas. Almost as impressive as his award was the fact that Henry did not drop one pass during the 2015 collegiate season.
The former Razorback was widely regarded as college football’s best tight end coming into the 2016 draft by the majority of draft pundits.
With the recently departed Ladarius Green signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers this offseason, Henry will be called upon to contribute immediately.
Reports out of Chargers’ OTAs have made it seem as thought he has already impressed. I’m sure it doesn’t hurt that he has future Hall-of-Famer Antonio Gates in camp to learn from.
Now that Henry has signed, the Bolts only have Joey Bosa and Max Tuerk left to sign to their respective rookie contracts.
