Good morning, Chargers fans! Welcome to the weekend!
We got some news for you that sort’ve went under the radar on Friday. According to Greg Auman, the Buccaneers beat writer for The Athletic, the Chargers have tendered offensive lineman Tyree St. Louis.

Tendering St. Louis means that the team has offered him the minimum salary that they’re able to according to the latest CBA. St. Louis can still negotiate with other teams, but it doesn’t hurt the Chargers to make the offer due to its’ relatively low impact on the team’s cap. It’s essentially the same as a futures deal.
This past season, St. Louis started two games at right guard in place of the now-released Trai Turner and contributed in five games total. He played 80 total snaps, allowed zero sacks, and finished with an overall grade of 37.7 by Pro Football Focus.
Prior to joining the Chargers in October of 2019, St. Louis spent time on the practice squad with both the Patriots and the Colts.
