Franchise Tag
 
Any word on if we will use it or not? I know the deadline was today, I just don't know if they announce it right away, or take a little time to announce it....?

No, they are up against the cap. Franchising a guy right now would take a big cap hit and make it impossible to re-sign most of our other FA's.

I don't think that is the issue. Mario, Jacoby, MattL, are all gone and only Arian has replaced them so far.
