AP source: Chargers reach deal with Linsley
COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — A person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press that the Los Angeles Chargers are taking a huge step toward upgrading their offensive line, agreeing to terms on a five-year contract with All-Pro center Corey Linsley.
NFL Network reported Linsley will become the highest-paid center in the league at $62.5 million. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because teams can’t announce free agent deals until the NFL’s new league year begins Wednesday.
Monday began the two-day “legal tampering” period when teams could reach out and start negotiating with unrestricted free agents.
