Correct me if I understand free agency for 2010 uncapped wrong, but each team gets an extra franchise tag according to my understanding. Demeco gets the Franchise Player Exclusive and no team can negotiate. Texans offer 1 year deal avg top 5 MLB or 20% whichever higher. Owen Daniels: Franchise Player Non-exclusive. Player can negotiate with other teams but Texans can match offer. If no match & player leaves Texans get two first round picks. Would another team give up two firsts for a pro bowl tight end? DR gets the additional tag offered in uncapped year. I can't find my link from earlier this year explaining how this tag works. Smith played hardball with these three last off season and could do so again. Through 7 games both Ryans and OD are at pro bowl potential IMO and DR keeps improving. Not sure if he will reach his ceiling soon. Tags would keep all three on the roster and more will be known how CBA will evolve. I know there will be sentiment to keep all three with long term deals, but that might not happen.
