The Diego Chargers’ defensive lineman Corey Liuget will be playing for the team for another one year, this is after the player and the team agreed to a one-year contract extension. The news was made public by the team on Tuesday.
Several sources have pointed out that Liuget’s contract extension with the Detroit Chargers will make up a five-year deal in which Liuget will be taking home 10 million dollars a year.
While speaking about the new deal and the fact that it was made before the training camp was completed, the Chargers defensive lineman said that the move was necessary and couldn’t come at a better time. The Detroit Chargers are expected to end their training camp in late July.
“Having this contract issue sorted out before we come to the end of training camp in July is a big deal. That said, it will be a great honor for me once we are able to complete the whole process as this shows that the organization believes in me and that they also value the work that I do for them in their quest of winning the championship.”
By offering the defensive line a contract extension, the Detroit Chargers have shown that they are interested in having the 25-year old, Liuget, be the team’s foundation player. In addition to that, they do believe that Liuget has all the necessary skills that make a perfect leader for a team.
Liuget will have a tough road ahead especially with the team’s veterans Dwight Freeney and Jarret Johnson leaving. Nonetheless, he knows what’s required of him and he has said that he is ready to deliver.
