The deadline for NFL teams to secure a “Franchise Tag” on one of their best roster players is today. Once the day is over, NFL teams will have a better understanding of which players are truly on the free-agent block.
Some interesting names that have not been tagged are: Drew Brees (San Diego Chargers), LeCharles Bentley (New Orleans Saints), and Steve Hutchinson (Seattle Seahawks).
Of the three players mentioned, the San Diego Chargers have explicitly stated that Drew Brees definitely will not be franchised. Let’s see what his agent can price him at on the open market.
