ESPN...
Quote:
San Diego Chargers: The Chargers do not have a player worth using the franchise tag on in free agency. Safety Eric Weddle will be allowed to hit the free-agent market. And although still productive, tight end Antonio Gates, who turns 36 this summer, is at the end of his career. Young tight end Ladarius Green could find a market in free agency, but he has been injured and too inconsistent to command the use of the franchise tag.
-- Eric D. Williams

According to a SDUT article quote - it's official.
Quote:
"I don't foresee any scenario in which we'll use the franchise tag," Telesco said.
So, no tagged Charger players.

We offered him 50 cents and some chewing gum as a contract starting point.

Not a strategy that worked well with Weddle but worth a try...

Quote:
The start of the 2016 league year begins Wednesday at 1 p.m. PT. With that, free agency begins in full swing, and Allen and other members of the 2013 draft class become eligible for contract extensions. Allen is a strong candidate for one. There is, however, a time for everything.

Extension time isn’t just yet.

We’re going to concentrate right now on our impending free agents and potential outside free agents,” General Manager Tom Telesco said at the NFL Combine last week. “Then the draft, and we’ll go from there.

Such was the case in 2015.

The Chargers initiated extension talks with defensive end Corey Liuget’s representation after the April draft. Come June, as the team prepared to break from minicamp, Liuget agreed to a five-year, $51.2 million deal.

The team and Allen may walk a similar path.

All indications are Allen, like Liuget, won’t skip voluntary workouts in the spring. Allen and a source close to him have expressed in recent months that it’s his preference not to hold out. And again, like with Liuget, the Chargers are expected to wait until after the draft before they engage in contract discussions.

Some of the anti-Weddle folk around here take super hilarious shots at him like that because they're so creative and objective about the whole situation.
