Los Angeles Chargers: Three Hunter Henry Free Agency Destinations
Hunter Henry is going to be by far the top tight end available on the free-agent market this offseason. He has played his entire career with the Los Angeles Chargers. I am sure it would help to bring him back for the sake of quarterback Justin Herbert‘s growth and development.
Henry is one of the best catching tight ends in the NFL when he is healthy. Hunter Henry can also block solidly. If Henry decides to go somewhere else potentially next season, what route could he decide to go?
The Philadelphia Eagles may be potentially moving on from Zach Ertz this offseason. Philadelphia I am sure likes Dallas Goedert but at this point in time, Hunter Henry is a better option. He could be a very reliable weapon for either quarterback Carson Wentz or Jalen Hurts.
Henry can catch passes with ease. He usually doesn’t drop passes. Philadelphia Eagles fans would appreciate that very much. Hunter Henry would be a potential number one option in the receiving game. Henry would like playing in Philadelphia the best most likely here in this situation as well here. Hunter Henry would be a security blanket for whoever is the quarterback in Philadelphia with the Eagles next season.
Henry would be another weapon for the Buffalo Bills. Josh Allen would have another toy to play with within the offense. Hunter Henry would add another dimension to this offense. It could be like the Tyreek Hill and the Travis Kelce with having Stefon Diggs and Hunter Henry.
The Carolina Panthers are looking to make serious moves this offseason. They are looking to trade for a quarterback or draft one. Carolina already has running back Christian McCaffrey in the backfield, D.J. Moore, and Robby Anderson at the wide receiver position, and also they need a tight end.
Wide receiver Curtis Samuel is a pending free agent. They don’t have a true number one tight end threat in the passing game at all. Hunter Henry would make this offense even more dangerous. Matt Rhule is the head coach and Joe Brady is the offensive coordinator for Carolina. Henry would be a treat for that offense. He would thrive in it. Hunter Henry would potentially get this team back to the playoffs next season.
Henry was the heartbeat of the Los Angeles Chargers tight ends group. He will be missed big time if Los Angeles lets him walk.
Hunter Henry is 26 years old. He played in 14 games last season. Henry caught 60 passes for 613 yards receiving and four touchdowns.
The most likely landing spot for him is the Philadelphia Eagles, followed by the Carolina Panthers, and followed by the Buffalo Bills also.
