Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Reaches four-year deal with Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram agreed to terms on a four-year deal with Chargers on Sunday.

The Chargers slapped Ingram with the franchise tag in February and with each passing day it seemed less and less likely the two sides would agree to terms on a long-term deal before the July 15 deadline. However, those concerns and any speculation that Ingram could hold out of training camp were put to rest following Sunday's news. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the contract is worth up to $66 million with $42 million guaranteed, which is likely deserved for a player who accumulated 18.5 sacks across the past two seasons and has developed into one of the most feared pass rushers in the league.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Not participating in Chargers OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram has not been a participant in the Chargers' OTAs as he continues to negotiate for a long-term deal, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Ingram received the franchise tag during the offseason, but there was optimism within the Chargers' organization that both sides would negotiate a long-term deal before the start of training camp. That possibility is dwindling by the day, however, as Ingram and the Chargers have until July 15 to come to some sort of agreement. When healthy, the 28-year-old has developed into a standout pass rusher, recording 18.5 sacks over the last two seasons.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Receives franchise tag from Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram received the Chargers' franchise tag on Monday, CSN's Albert Breer reports.

Ingram and the Chargers still have until July 15 to reach a long-term deal. However, in the event the two sides don't agree to terms in time, it isn't clear if he'll be priced as a linebacker or a defensive end. The former is estimated to amount to $15 million while the latter will likely come in around $17 million. Ingram hasn't missed a game the last two seasons and racked up 18.5 sacks and 125 tackles across that time span. Combined with the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, Joey Bosa, he's now set to spearhead the Chargers' pass rush for at least one more year.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Ends season with eight sacks
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ingram finished the season with 60 tackles, eight sacks and four forced fumbles.

Ingram performed well in a contract year, nearly missing his career mark in sacks which he set in 2015. While the 27-year-old is expected to command a lucrative deal in free agency should he hit the open market, it's not a given the former first-round pick will return to the team that drafted him in 2012, as the Chargers may not want to match the price tag. Still, Ingram figures to be a pass-rushing force for any team that does ultimately sign the versatile linebacker, and as a result should be on the radar in deeper IDP leagues.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Earns another sack in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram picked up three tackles and a sack in Saturday's loss to the Browns.

That's now back-to-back weeks with a sack as Ingram has paired nicely with Joey Bosa to create a formidable pass rush. While his sack numbers have been down this season, Ingram's strong end to the year could be a sign of things to come, as the Bosa-Ingram tandem could be a nightmare for teams in the future, and a boon for IDP owners.
