Quite a few big names were mentioned, including Panthers tight end Greg Olson, Falcons running back Devonta Freeman, and 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.The first name listed is what should sway Chargers fans to give it a read as Kelly named fourth-year tight end Hunter Henry, as well, in large part due to Adam Schefter’s recent tweet that probably struck a nerve or two for the Chargers’ faithful:Maybe take a second and consider sentence structure? Whew.At any rate LaDainian Tomlinson Color Rush Jersey , Henry is healthy, wealthy, and hopefully wise. After being cleared to participate in the final game of the Chargers’ season against the Patriots, Henry saw small amount of snaps but was eventually held out once the game got out of hand.If you were anything like me, the injury to Henry was incredibly devastating as he’s been one of my favorite players since he was drafted back in 2016. Aside from Forrest Lamp, he is who I cheer for the most. So you can imagine how awful the last two years have been for me...It also didn’t help that I bought a brand new, super fresh Hunter Henry jersey ONE WEEK before he went down last May. (insert crying emoji here)Alas, here is what Kelly had to say about the young Jatavis Brown Color Rush Jersey , dynamic pass-catcher:The Chargers’ dynamic tight end looked poised for a major breakout in 2018 but tore his ACL late in May at the team’s OTAs. That injury effectively robbed Henry of the entire season (he did end up returning to the active roster for L.A.’s playoff loss to the Patriots in the divisional round), but now fully healthy, he’s set up once again for a giant leap forward in 2019.“The 24-year-old has played in 29 career games thus far, notching 81 catches for 1,057 yards and 12 touchdowns. He’s a combo tight end who’s capable of blocking in the run game or creating mismatches in the passing attack; he brings physicality, athleticism, and toughness to the Chargers offense—and with Tyrell Williams (65 targets, 41 catches Rayshawn Jenkins Color Rush Jersey , five touchdowns) and Antonio Gates (45 targets, 333 yards, two touchdowns) both gone from the team’s passing attack, there’s going to be no shortage of opportunity for the soon-to-be fourth-year pro. I expect that Philip Rivers will look for him early and often this year.”With so many opportunities left in the wake of Tyrell’s move to Oakland, and the potential for Gates to not be brought back by the team for another season, there’s well over 100 potential targets for Henry to gobble up this year.Just keep your clovers and rabbit’s feet nearby at all times. After what seems like a never-ending carousel of “maybe” and “surely now,” the Chargers have gone and done it— they’ve activated their secret weapon, TE Hunter Henry.There were more than just rumors Justin Jones Color Rush Jersey , but rather a full expectation that Henry would be active for the wildcard game last weekend, but come Saturday’s deadline coach Anthony Lynn felt that Henry still had a little further to go.Today, the Chargers officially added him back into the fold.This is a very promising addition to a high-stakes Patriots showdown this coming weekend in Foxborough. While Hunter Henry wasn’t quite the ball-hogging monster that Rob Gronkowski is regarded as, he has been a very talented offensive player and should provide an additional opportunity for Philip Rivers on each play. Gronk hasn’t quite been himself this year, though he does have a history of success against the Chargers (240 yards and five touchdowns in four games). Henry’s addition could change the entire look of the Chargers already-potent offense, and he could help bolster his own impressive TE resume.Henry started 13 of 14 games a year ago, bringing in 45 passes for 579 yards and four TDs. As a rookie in 2016, he led the Chargers with eight touchdown catches while catching 36 passes for 478 yards. His eight touchdowns makes him tied for most in the NFL by a tight end and tied for second in the NFL among all rookies.Henry returned to practice on Monday Kyzir White Color Rush Jersey , Dec. 17. That opened up a 21-day window in which the Chargers either had to activate Henry, or he’d be ineligible to play until next season.Now all eyes will be on the field to see what these two Tight Ends, perhaps headed in opposite directions, can produce.-Jason “Go ahead, make another tight end joke” Michaels
