Draft Scout Melvin Ingram News
06/13/17 - DE Melvin Ingram was at Monday's minicamp practice, the first of three before the Chargers wrap up that portion of their offseason workouts. Ingram arrived after agreeing to a four-year deal worth about $60 million, with around $40 million of it guaranteed. The Charger had initially placed the franchise tag on Ingram before the two sides reached an agreement. "It's a big relief,'' said Ingram, who's had 18.5 sacks the past two years. "Now that it's over it's all fun and games and you get to do what you like to do."
03/02/17 - LB Melvin Ingram was retained via the franchise tag. Coach Anthony Lynn said Ingram does more than pester quarterbacks. "He's a big piece of the puzzle," Lynn said. "He's an outstanding pass rusher, but he plays the run well. His stats -- I think he had (eight) sacks or something like that -- but when you look at his impact on the game, his quarterback hits, hit pressures, he just did an outstanding job. I love the way he plays the game." The Chargers were eager to keep the tandem of Joey Bosa, the NFL defensive rookie of the year, and Ingram together.
01/02/17 - OLB Melvin Ingram, who eight sacks, will see his rookie contract expire this offseason. Teammate Joey Bosa is hoping he returns to the Chargers. "I think throughout the season we got a feel for each other," Bosa said. "Playing across from a guy like that really helps me."
12/25/15 - OLB Melvin Ingram had one sack Thursday night against Oakland, giving him a team-high nine for the season. Ingram had a career-high 2 1/2 sacks the previous week in a victory against Miami.
12/09/15 - LB Melvin Ingram has been playing at a high level of late. Ingram, the team's 2012 first-round pick, has 3.5 sacks and a forced fumble in his past five games. Jerry Attaochu, who starts opposite Ingram, has been producing more recently and that has helped free up opportunities for Ingram.
