It’s getting very hard for teams to add a veteran pass rusher, and free agency hasn’t even started yet. The Los Angeles Chargers reportedly have locked down Ingram with the tag, and the two sides will have until July 15 to work out a long-term deal. Monday saw a slew of pressure defenders hit with the tag: the New York Giants’ Jason Pierre-Paul, the Carolina Panthers’ Kawann Short, and the Arizona Cardinals’ Chandler Jones, with more likely to come before Wednesday, which is the final day for franchise and transition tags to be applied.
