The Los Angeles Chargers and tight end Hunter Henry won't be reaching a long-term agreement ahead of Wednesday's deadline to sign franchise-tagged players to extensions, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.
As a result, Henry will play out the 2020 campaign on the one-year tag.
The 25-year-old signed his tender in May. Henry previously said he'd prefer to ink a long-term contract before the season begins, but he'd be content if an agreement wasn't reached.
A second-round pick in 2016, Henry will earn $10.6 million this year. He set career highs with 55 receptions for 652 yards over 12 games last season while also amassing five touchdown catches.
