Details On Corey Liguet’s Extension

The full details of Corey Liuget‘s contract extension with the Chargers have surfaced, and the 25-year-old defensive lineman did very well for himself. When news of Liuget’s new deal first broke, I speculated that he would fall into the second tier of 3-4 defensive ends rather than joining players like J.J. Watt, Cameron Jordan, Calais Campbell, and Jurrell Casey in the first tier.

However, the Chargers’ agreement with Liuget indicates that the team is paying him not only for what he has done so far in his career, but for what the club believes he can do over the next several years. Liuget’s deal places him fourth among 3-4 defensive ends in annual salary, falling in just behind Jordan’s new contract, suggesting that San Diego thinks the former first-round pick is still on the rise.
