Ingram was franchised tagged earlier this offseason in hopes to reach a long-term agreement, which they just did.
The edge rusher had 18.5 sacks in the last two seasons with 125 combined tackles. Ingram also has a nose for the football forcing seven fumbles in the last two seasons.
According to Pro Football Focus, he was the No. 6 best edge rusher last season, one behind Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa, with a player grade of 88.1.
Now, Los Angeles has two of the best pass rushers in the entire NFL locked up long-term, which means the Chargers will be wreaking havoc on opposing quarterbacks for the foreseeable future.
