Ingram received the Chargers' franchise tag on Monday, CSN's Albert Breer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram and the Chargers still have until July 15 to reach a long-term deal. However, in the event the two sides don't agree to terms in time, it isn't clear if he'll be priced as a linebacker or a defensive end. The former is estimated to amount to $15 million while the latter will likely come in around $17 million. Ingram hasn't missed a game the last two seasons and racked up a combined 18.5 sacks and 125 tackles in that time span. Combined with NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, Joey Bosa, he's now set to spearhead the Chargers' pass rush for at least one more year.

Ingram finished the season with 60 tackles, eight sacks and four forced fumbles.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram performed well in a contract year, nearly missing his career mark in sacks which he set in 2015. While the 27-year-old is expected to command a lucrative deal in free agency should he hit the open market, it's not a given the former first-round pick will return to the team that drafted him in 2012, as the Chargers may not want to match the price tag. Still, Ingram figures to be a pass rushing force for any team that does ultimately sign the versatile linebacker, and as a result should be on the radar in deeper IDP leagues.

Ingram picked up three tackles and a sack in Saturday's loss to the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

That's now back-to-back weeks with a sack as Ingram has paired nicely with Joey Bosa to create a formidable pass rush. While his sack numbers have been down this season, Ingram's strong end to the year could be a sign of things to come, as the Bosa-Ingram tandem could be a nightmare for teams in the future, and a boon for IDP owners.

Ingram recorded a sack, six tackles and two forced fumbles in the loss to the Raiders on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

The sack Sunday was Ingram's first since Week 10, as the Chargers have struggled to put together a consistent pass rush save for Joey Bosa. With just two weeks yet to play, it doesn't seem likely that Ingram will surpass his 2015 numbers, in which he recorded 10 and a half sacks, but he's become the Chargers' second-best option in terms of pass rush and has teamed nicely with the aforementioned Bosa throughout the year.

Ingram tallied four tackles and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram managed to provide the only sack for the Chargers on the afternoon, his team-leading sixth of the season. In a season marred by injuries, Ingram has been one of the Chargers only defensive players to contribute in each of the first 10 games.

Ingram led the way for the Chargers Sunday, recording nine tackles (six solo), a sack and two quarterback hits in the win.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram coupled with Joey Bosa to wreak havoc in the Falcons backfield as the duo combined for three sacks in the come-from-behind win. Both players lead the Chargers with four sacks on the season, but it's Ingram who presents a solid amount of IDP upside as he's on pace to record a season-high in tackles.

Ingram recorded six tackles (five solo) and one tackle for a loss in Thursday's win over the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram was a handful Thursday, combining with the rest of the Chargers defensive line to harass Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian for much of the night. While Ingram did not pick up a sack for a second consecutive week, he has been able to get consistent pressure on the quarterback and might see even more opportunities now that Joey Bosa has finally made his way onto the field.

Ingram finished Sunday's loss to the Saints with five tackles and a sack.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram has quietly put together a solid season thus far, picking up three sacks as well as a handful of quarterback knockdowns. While his tackle numbers have not been up to par, Ingram is one of the premiere pass-rushers on the team and should be in line for more opportunities in the coming weeks.

Ingram recorded two sacks and one tackle for a loss in the Sunday win over the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram was a disruptive force against the Jaguars, pressuring QB Blake Bortles throughout the contest. Coming off a career year in 2015, in which he recorded 10.5 sacks, Ingram could be poised for a repeat performance as the Chargers defensive line has greatly improved with the addition of Brendan Mebane.
