Chargers Set to Give DE Corey Liuget a Five-Year Extension

San Diego Chargers v Denver Broncos

The Chargers are on the verge of giving defensive end Corey Liuget a five-year extension worth more than $50 million with $30 million guaranteed, this according to

Here’s info on the deal from the site:

Liuget, 25, has started 61 of a possible 64 games over the past four years, leading the defensive line in snaps. Although he struggles at times against the run, he’s the rare Chargers defensive star capable of pushing the pocket to harass opposing quarterbacks.

It would be understandable if the Chargers were gun-shy about committing to a young nucleus player on defense after inside linebacker Donald Butler’s disappointing first season under a new seven-year, $51.8 million deal. Fortunately for Liuget, that’s obviously not the case.

    Corey is a solid contributor along the DL, and this looks like a good move.
