    Schefter: Titans going to franchise TE Bo Scaife

    There goes the best TE off the market, if that happens.

    Owen Daniels is a RFA though.

      I wish the NFL would get rid of the franchise tag.

          When NFL teams can only sign picks 17-32 to a max of five years, and every draft picks afterwards to a max of 4 years, under a salary cap system, you've got to give them the franchise tag. They've developed the players, they need some measure to lock up one player every offseason if they need to. And these players are getting paid the average of the Top 5 guys at their position, that is fair compensation imo.

            Texans franchise Robinson

            Houston Texans put franchise tag on Dunta Robinson.

            I wouldn't be surprised if Houston and Robinson agree to a long-term deal before the season starts.

              Other sports have survived without the franchise tag. The NFL can too. It's a ***** way out of things. I'm sure the Pittsburgh Penguins would have loved to franchise tag Marian Hossa last year after they gave up a gazillion prospects for him. Sadly for them, their sport doesn't have the "***** way out to keep a player" clause and they lost him. It should be the same.

                  LB Leroy Hill designated franchise player of the Seattle Seahawks today.

                  A bit surprising.

                  So much cap space, fewer quality free agents available. Haynesworth will be the highest paid defensive player in the league.

                    I was glad Atogwe was tagged, I don't know how many teams would have wanted him in Free Agency, so I'd think we could have signed him for longer and cheaper then.

                      I don't think he is worth the tag my self but they must feel they can get a deal done later on.

                        Shefter is reporting the Panthers have put the franchise tag on Julius Peppers. Cost of $16.683M.

                        Maybe the big baby isn't going to get the shiny new trade he wants, wah wah.

                            <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
                            <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

                              They can't let go of the little bit of talent they have on that side of the ball. The only guy on their secondary worth paying, actually.

                                The FA market is getting thin.
