24 yrs old, 6'5 220 productive when healthy**, because he went undrafted, he won't even cost a draft pick...I say 3 yrs at 3-3.5 per yr is worth the risk.

Alexander would be a solid pickup, Obomanu is costing us 2.3 mil so I'd eve go up to $4mil per year on a few years to get him, but make it so we could easily cut him as well. He would be a great backup if Rice got injured and allow us to go in any direction when drafting a WR this year.

I would take him in a heartbeat but how much are you willing to pay him? Maybe they are just gonna let the market set his price and match the offer no matter what?

When Danario signed with the Rams in 2010, he visited with the Seahawks and he fits the big receiver mold Pete likes. Knee issues but that didn't stop them from bringing in Winslow last year, and keeping him had he swallowed his pride on the salary

That's huge. All reports out of San Diego were that the Chargers were ready to give him a 1st round tender. This just changes everything. He's got awful knees but whenever he's in there he's a beast. You'd have to know that he'll miss time throughout his stint going in but I still think he'd be worth it.

Pretty surprising. Really makes you wonder about the shape of the knees.

He only played nine games last year because of injury BUT.... he had better than 60 yards in seven games, had seven touchdowns and an average of better than 17 yards per catch. I'm not sure what DVOA means but apparently he ranked #1 amongst all wide receivers in the league last year.

If he can pass a physical he may become the best value on the market based on the type of receiver the Hawks need. Well be really interested to see if Pete and John bring him in for a look.

Wow, that's crazy. They can still match the tender though, can't they?

Yes, the Chargers well have the chance to match any deal Alexander signs with another club.

This player was the 16th best WR in the league last season as per footballoutsiders.com. I think SD has made a mistake here by not going with a higher RFA tender. It'd not surprise me to see that more than few teams are not all over this situation he's good player with elite size who is now healthy. I hope the FO has a hard look at Alexander as he'd match the need for a big, long armed, fast WR.

Dang, he's got some pretty impressive highlights. Big, fast, great hands... Having him, Rice, Tate and Baldwin would be quite the receiving corps.

You all might be onto something here. I liked Alexander as a prospect in college. I guess they can check him out medically before signing him. But, they'd better hurry if he's all that is said. This is a WR who seems to me to be a classic example of adequate game speed even though he didn't clock well (or, was that due to injuries?)

San Diego aren't in the business of gifting the league good receivers. If they've tagged him that low, it suggests the knees are a serious problem.

Couldn't it just be that they don't really know what his value is?

I mean, this tender just basically makes it so some other team can do the leg work of negotiating a deal, revealing the guy's market value, and SD can decide whether or not to go from there.

I'm not reading too much into what this says.

That was the old management. I had the same thought, though.

Perhaps, but by offering a second round tender they're basically in the same situation with some insurance if he moves on. Given how cheap the tender is, it seems like a strange decision to almost force a market upon Alexander rather than just wait until next year when he isn't a RFA.

It is a strange decision. Mike McCoy once worked for Josh McDaniels who was the OC for Alexander in STL, so maybe that input was part of the decision. I imagine McDaniels telling him not to rely on Alexander would carry some weight.

Tom Telesco just made a rookie mistake. I hope the Seahawks make him pay for it. Sure, Alexander may not be a great bet to play in 16 games, but Seattle needs a depth player with size and speed who provides excellent per target contribution. Alexander does all of that. And Seattle wouldn't be crushed by an Alexander injury, either. The way that Russell Wilson spreads the football, no single receiver or tight end carries very much of the burden in this offense.

3 year 18 mil deal where we could cut him after year 2 without a big cap hit, guarantee 10mil and I think we'd get him easily. SD won't match that. The cap hit this year could be 4-5mil. He would be a big time aquision for us at a reasonable rate (less than Hartline) plus we are not so reliant upon him that an injury would not be a big hit. It's truly a low risk high reward type move that Pete and John love. I doubt we'd be afraid to pay the money but would he want to come here?

No way I offer that with those knees, though.

Well... possibly for the same reason San Diego doesn't just want to pay him a nominal amount to play on a second round tender. The Chargers essentially turned down the chance to have a very cheap receiver on their roster... guaranteed. Instead they're letting him go and find out his market a year before they have to. He's an unrestricted free agent next year. There was no reason to offer the original round tender to a former UDFA. So either they just made one of the weirdest and dumbest mistakes in recent NFL history, or his knee's are a mess.

not sure what I would do here. I'm still on board with us NOT signing anyone b/c of next year's big name players who will be looking to get paid. ehh.....I mean Im not expert so if JS and PC know what they are doing then yeah bring him in. RW DOES need weapons. I know we keep hearing they are upgrading the pass rush but we all know about the smoke screens JS and PC love to put up. We might be going after a WR in the 1st round or possibly the 2nd. I guess we will see what happens.

the low tender may have been a means to get a compensatory pick, knowing nobody would sign him if it were a 1st/2nd round tender

DJ Hackett...from the Holmgren days. An enigma who always had a high ankle sprain. Danario seems like another player in his mold. An enigma who is always injured. What good is a player if he's never healthy to play?

I think it's a mistake no matter how you look at it. He played half a season last year- and in that half season he probably accrued, I would estimate, five or six million dollars in contribution. A second round tender costs $1.927 million. If they don't think his upside and even part time contribution is worth $2 million, they are mistaken. And who knows, maybe he just broke out last season. Maybe he's going to be a star. San Diego is hardly loaded at WR.

Stupid, stupid, stupid. Even if he's DJ Hackett, it's mildly stupid IMO.

Because it would take a lot more guaranteed money. If we offer him a peanuts contract, why would San Diego not match it?
