What is the catch?
For the Chargers front office, this might be a dream come true to get something in exchange for a player that (at the absolute best) was going to net you a 4th round compensatory pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
However, there is a catch. You have to take Vic Beasley in the deal.
Now it isn’t terrible (and I will explain why in a minute) but it is non-negotiable because I just don’t think this is going to work out well in Tennessee.
From a cap standpoint, a trade would end up looking like this on the books (again this is just the player and the cap information):
-Titans get Melvin Ingram (and lose $11.5 million in cap space)
-Chargers get Vic Beasley (and gain $11.5 million in cap space)
Remember, this is very important because a certain amount of cap space rolls over to 2021 from 2020, so the more cap space you have now the better prepared you will be when the cap drops.
