When Falcons franchised CB Brent Grimes, it marked the first time Atlanta has used franchise tag. Seattle has used it an NFL high 10 times.

You could ask the same question of every player who is (or ever has been) franchised. The answer is...


I'm sure most of the teams using franchise tags want to reach a long term deal - and many will before the deadline. Sometimes it just takes a while to get there.

The one person truly holding back the Chargers from winning is Turner and maybe that is why he does not want to stay.

I don't like how guys sit out because of the franchise tag. That was agreed upon by the players association & the owners. IMO, every time a player sits out because of the franchise tag, as an owner, I would want to find a way to take action against the NFLPA.

If they didn't like it, they shouldn't have agreed to it. If that meant a hold-out..... so be it.

If that meant a longer hold out.. so be it.

The minute you hand him the franchise tender he can sign it and it is fully guaranteed.

Default Re: Franchise tag discussion

DeSean Jackson, WR $9.5 million
Jackson was one of the big names that everyone expected to be tagged. And he was hit with the tag on Thursday. The question is whether or not the Eagles will shop him or look for a long-term deal.

Brent Grimes, CB $10.4 million
Although Grimes had a standout 2009 and 2010, his play fell off a bit last year, and Atlanta might be worried about giving him a long-term deal.

Ray Rice, RB $7.7 million
Rice wants Adrian Peterson money (or, ahem, $100 million), but we think he's worth closer to what DeAngelo Williams makes (five years, $43 million).

Dashon Goldson, S $6.2 million
After having to sign a one-year, $2 million deal for 2012 (after turning down a five-year, $25 million offer), it seems that Goldson might have to wait a little longer before a long-term deal comes his way.

Calais Campbell, DL $10.6 million
Campbell was a top priority for Arizona to keep, and the Cardinals would like to sign him to a long-term deal. For now, though, he'll have to be content with the tag.

Mike Nugent, K ~$2.6 million
Nugent, 30, converted 87 percent of his field-goal attempts in 2011 and added an impressive 36 touchbacks.

Phil Dawson, K $3.8 million
The going rate for franchised kickers is about $2.6 million but Dawson was franchised in 2010 too, so he's set to make $3.8 in '11. Seems like a high price to pay for a 37-year-old who had two kicks blocked and managed just 10 touchbacks.

Fred Davis, TE $5.4 million
Davis missed the final four games of the 2011 season for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, but he still had a career year: 59 catches, 796 yards and three TDs in 12 games. The thinking: RG3 (or, more generally, QBs not named Rex or John) is going to need somebody to throw to, right?

Tyvon Branch, S $6.2 million
The Raiders informed Branch, one of the team's best players last season, that he would likely be tagged and Friday it happened. The move means that RB Michael Bush is headed for free agency.

Matt Forte, RB $7.7 million
No surprise here. The two sides couldn't come to an agreement before the season and then Forte went down with a knee injury late in the season.

This doesn't make much sense to me, but given it's the Cowboys, I don't really care:

Cowboys likely to tag Anthony Spencer
Quote:
Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com reports that the team is likely to place the franchise tag on Spencer before Monday’s deadline to use it. The tag would guarantee Spencer a one-year deal worth $8.8 million.

Spencer isn't a bust, but should be getting better numbers with the best in the game on the other side. No way is he worth the franchise tag.

He would have been a great CHEAP pickup for the Texans.

Tyvon Branch, S $6.2 million
The Raiders informed Branch, one of the team's best players last season, that he would likely be tagged and Friday it happened. The move means that RB Michael Bush is headed for free agency.

Matt Forte, RB $7.7 million
No surprise here. The two sides couldn't come to an agreement before the season and then Forte went down with a knee injury late in the season.

Drew Brees, QB $14.4 million
This move is an utter failure in the negotiations between Brees and the Saints on a long-term deal, but both sides have to be hopeful they can still work out a deal. The problem here is that the team probably will lose guard Carl Nicks with this move.

Connor Barth, K $2.6 million
Barth's reportedly reportedly tagged a year after knocking down 92.7 percent of his field goals for the Bucs. But yes, it's still not usually a good thing when a team has to tag its kicker.

Josh Scobee, K $2.6 million
Scobee was the biggest point-scorer on an anemic Jags offense in 2011, and knocked down 92 percent of his field goals, making him a solid target for the tag, even if he is a kicker.

Matt Prater, K $2.6 million
Prater only hit 76 percent of his field goals, but he nailed some long, clutch kicks for Denver. Also, he was worshipped by Jesus in a Saturday Night Live skit. That alone is worth a tag.

Cliff Avril, DE $10.6 million
Avril would've made a fortune on the free-agent market, but Detroit isn't letting him walk. They tagged him on Monday morning and desperately need to work out an extension.

Michael Griffin, S $6.2 million
Griffin, not cornerback Cortland Finnegan, got the franchise tag from the Titans on Monday. At $6.2 million, that's quite a nice value for the team.

Anthony Spencer, LB $8.8 million
The Cowboys tagged Spencer late on Monday even though he hasn't been that productive of a player since being a first-round pick. However, Dallas feels that the market will be tough for pass-rushing linebackers.

Wes Welker, WR $9.4 million
No surprise here as our Pats Rapid Reporter Greg Bedard reports that Welker got the tag. New England simply can't afford to lose their best wideout.

Dwayne Bowe, WR $9.4 million
The expectation after the Chiefs signed Stanford Routt was that Bowe would be franchised. The Chiefs announced that he was given the tag on Monday afternoon.

Steve Weatherford, P $2.5 million
Weatherford became just the third punter to ever receive the franchise tag when the Giants hit him with it on Monday.

Robert Mathis, DE $10.6 million
The Colts haven't "officially" announced the move, but they've reportedly tagged Mathis and have tentatively agreed to a long-term deal.
