Longtime Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry is set to become a free agent for the first time in his career.

Though he's never experienced life on the open market, he has his priorities in order for an ideal destination.

"I want to play somewhere there's a good quarterback. That's huge for our position. It makes things a lot easier," Henry said Friday on SiriusXM NFL Radio. "Playing with a good quarterback always makes things better. You gotta look at both. You gotta look at some of the financial stuff, but not dive too deep into it that you go chasing it because I also want to play with a good quarterback."

In his five seasons with the Bolts, Henry has caught the majority of his passes from Philip Rivers and Justin Herbert.

With Herbert, Henry saw the most targets of his career and turned them into 60 receptions for 613 yards and four touchdowns. He formed a rapport with the Offensive Rookie of the Year and wouldn't be opposed to rejoining the Chargers.

"I've really enjoyed my time here, so I'm not going to ever rule that out, you know, with a young quarterback, me and Justin have formed a relationship," he said. "But I think I'm open to whatever, and I think I kind of have to, in a way, but I really enjoyed my time and if that continues, I'll be excited."
