If you have a player like Corey Redding, who played both DT and DE for the lions, and considering that many teams will look at him in either position, if he were to hypothetically get franchised, who picks the tender? When you consider that DTs get 2 million less, and many teams could look at him as a DE, should he get 9 or 7 million (aprox.)? And who would decide? The team? The player? The union? His playing time throughout his career? or in the last year of his career?

I read something about this yesterday. It's based on the position he logged the most time at.

I hope he doesn't get franchised, as a Giants fan. He'd make a great pass rushing DT for us.

That would make the most sense

He will get franchised. He will not be playing anywhere but Detroit next season. I can assure you of that.

Franchising him would be dumb and a waste.

I'm pretty sure the team decides, though I'm sure there is a way to keep them in check in case they try to franchise a QB as a kicker.

Why would it be a waste?

Even more funny is the fact they SHOULD do it.

I think Cory Redding is good, but he's not elite. Making him the franchise is paying him more than Co-DT Shaun Rogers makes.. and who's the better player?

*shrug* you started the trend. that said, that kind of crap response typically gets deleted out of hand now.

it isn't really all that funny nor has it been for the last two years. it's like the "raiders should take super-fast athlete X" joke.

NFL teams have until Thursday to place franchise tag

They need to get on it if they are going to tag him I know the Chiefs and a few other teams are high on him.

What I find to be ridiculous, is how teams love to low-ball players, then get in scuffles and end up franchising them and paying them even more money than they would be under a new contract. If Redding were offered, say something along the lines of 5 million a year, or 4 with a plump bonus, he'd surely take it.

So is the fact that the Lions retain Millen as the GM after making a mockery of the franchise. Don't hate on us making fun of the worst team in the league, try using your time productively. Get a hobby, take up a craft, volunteer in the community, or ROOT FOR A TEAM THAT HAS A CLUE!

to answer the question asked at the begining, he will be tagged as a DT, he played DT this year and was drafted as a DT. The rule, i believe, is that the player gets tagged at the position that they played in the year previous to having the tag. Therefore he will be a DT.
