Danario Alexander may get low RFA tender from Chargers

Donald Miralle

The Chargers are trying to figure out the best route to go with restricted free agent wide receiver Danario Alexander.

The San Diego Chargers are looking into a bevy of options right now, considering what tender to offer restricted free agent wide receiver Danario Alexander, according to NFL.com.

If the Chargers use only an original-round tender, any team could offer Alexander a contract and if San Diego doesn't match, they'd receive nothing since Alexander was an undrafted player out of college.

Of course, the higher tender a team offers the more they must pay. If the team steps up and slaps a first-round tender on Alexander or even a second-rounder, he is all but assured to stick around. It makes sense the Chargers want to keep Alexander in San Diego since he found good chemistry with quarterback Philip Rivers.

Alexander was a productive player on the Chargers last season after coming over from the St. Louis Rams, registering 37 catches for 658 yards and seven touchdowns. Alexander emerged as a deep threat to play alongside Malcom Floyd following the departure of Vincent Jackson in free agency to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last offseason.
