Spotrac’s Michael Ginnitti believes the Chargers could release Perryman this offseason despite just signing him to a two-year deal this past year.
He also identifies Chargers RB Austin Ekeler, a pending restricted free agent in 2020, as a strong extension candidate for the Chargers.
Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer writes that the cap on Chargers QB Philip Rivers‘ career is possibly three years at most, as Rivers has expressed a desire to coach his eldest son, in fifth grade right now, in high school football.
Breer adds the franchise tag makes a lot of sense for Rivers.
Ginnitti adds that Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins is a likely trade or release candidate given his $21 million 2020 cap hit and $14 million in potential cap savings.

According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Raiders first-round rookie Josh Jacobs received positive results from the MRI on his shoulder and he should return to the field this week after missing Sunday’s game due to a broken shoulder.
Per the Athletic’s Vic Tafur, Raiders HC Jon Gruden said that just because Jacobs was cleared to practice doesn’t mean that he will play: “Doesn’t mean he will or that he will play. We’ll see what happens next 48 hours.”
