Ingram, Chargers reach four-year deal after franchise tag

12 June 2017 02:15

The Los Angeles Chargers have signed franchise-tagged pass rusher Melvin Ingram to a four-year contract, the team announced on Sunday.

Los Angeles placed the tag on the defensive end in February, and the two parties have reached a deal more than a month before the July 15 NFL deadline. 

Ingram's contract is reportedly worth as much as $66million, with $42m guaranteed.

Ingram, the Chargers' 2012 first-round pick out of South Carolina, returned from a torn ACL at the end of the 2014 season to post 18.5 sacks in 32 games since.

The 28-year-old has 224 tackles, 46 tackles for loss and 24.5 sacks in his five years with the franchise.
