Regarding Danario (can it be so Tender)

Danario Alexander is a Restricted Free Agent, a term with which all Charger fans should be familiar. If not, here's a little info.

The new FO can choose to just tender him, or go ahead and sign him to a more long-term contract. Both of these have risks, so I'm interested in the community's opinion as the proper course of action. Which is the bigger concern?

A) The Jared Gaither, Jyles Tucker, Luis Castillo Scenario

Solid performance over a limited period of time is prematurely rewarded, saddling the team with an oversized contract on an underperforming player. Team is forced to take a cap hit, or play a struggling player for longer than they should.

B) The Vincent Jackson, Darren Sproles, Marcus McNiel Scenario

Unwillingness to sign a player long term results in tendering/franchising, possibly creating an acrimonious distraction for the team. Player may eventually become too expensive to keep (see Jackson, Vincent) or be paid in tag money what the guaranteed money on a multi-year contract would have been. (see Sproles, Darren)

Obviously we can't know if Alexander would make a long term contact worth it. But what do you think the proper course should be?
