Report: No high tender expected for Danario Alexander

Danario Alexander, Antonio Cromartie AP

The Chargers are not expected to tender wide receiver Danario Alexander at the first- or second-round level in restricted free agency, Adam Caplan of TheSidelineView.com reported Saturday morning. Instead, it’s likely they will give him the lowest RFA tender, Caplan reported.

The 6-foot-5, 212-pound Alexander was an exceptional in-season addition for San Diego in 2012, catching 37 passes for 658 yards and seven TDs in just 10 games for the Chargers. He ranks No. 57 in PFT’s list of the top 100 free agents in the Class of 2013.

It is unclear why the Chargers apparently won’t give Alexander a higher RFA tender. He has had a history of left knee issues (though, it should be noted, he didn’t miss a game for San Diego in 2012).

An undrafted free agent in 2010, Alexander would have to be tendered at the first- or second-round level for the Chargers to receive any draft-pick compensation were he to sign an offer sheet that they declined to match. A high tender might also have dampened the market for Alexander, considering the value of draft choices. However, that hurdle doesn’t appear to be in place. The question now is whether a team makes Alexander an offer.


Make him a offer

Sammie Hill likely leaving, Lions to lose defensive line depth
Posted by Michael David Smith on March 9, 2013, 6:39 AM EST
Sammie Lee Hill, Nick Fairley AP

Depth on the defensive line has been a strength of the Lions in recent years, but that may no longer be the case when free agency begins.

Lions defensive tackle Sammie Lee Hill has at least four teams interested in him but hasn’t heard from the Lions, Anwar S. Richardson of MLive.com reports.

The 6-foot-4, 329-pound Hill has been an important part of the Lions’ defensive tackle rotation, but with the Lions having spent first-round draft picks on starters Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley, it’s not surprising that the Lions don’t think they can devote major resources to a backup at the position. And if Hill already has four suitors, it probably wouldn’t be cheap to keep him.

Probably best to stay away from him if there's going to be a bidding war over his signature.

Hill could be a cheap sleeper. Hard to know what you get here because he only really started as a Rookie then the Lions drafted two DT with #1 picks. The times in the field he has shown flashes of promise. Enough to get tendered in 2012.
I think you're on to something with Sammie Hill. Spending the season debunking the "Suh is double-teamed on every play" myth, I noticed Sammie Hill actually attracts quite a few double teams himself & really does a good job operating in the shadows of Suh/Fairley. I'm not surprised to hear there's a few teams giving him a good look, don't know if he played NT in college, but I bet he could if the price is right.

If you're Detroit or New Orleans, get him or Charles Woodson to play for the veteran's minimum for a season or two while you draft some corners/safeties for them to mentor and rebuild the defensive backfield ... this GM stuff is easy! .

Saftey Adrian Wilson released by Cardinals.

great talent and a great addition but i need a medical on him.

oppsss can not do it we are paying backup DE/LB 4 million a year as rumor has it. so no cap for us to spend on proven starting talent

You have a back-up QB as an impact/need position?

And Matt Moore re-upped with Miami for 2 years
