Record Year for the Franchise Tag

A record (so far) 14 franchise tags have been handed out. Nobody wants to let their good guys walk. I also just read that the Titans will franchise Haynesworth if a deal isn't worked out by the tag deadline (tonight). The free agent pickings are shrinking. Here are the players tagged to date:

Karlos Dansby, Arizona

Terrell Suggs, Baltimore

Julius Peppers, Carolina

Dunta Robinson, CB, Houston

Matt Cassell, New England

Brandon Jacobs, NY Giants

Max Starks, Pittsburgh

Darren Sproles, San Diego

Oshiomogho Atowge, St Louis

Leroy Hill, Seattle

Antonio Bryant, Tampa Bay

Bo Scaife, Tennessee

Michael Koenen, P, Atlanta

Shayne Graham, Cinncinati

And it ain't over yet.

In other noteworthy news, the Raiders signed Asomugha to an astronomical contract.  http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3919067  Holy Crap. Now anyone doubt what Greer wiill get? At least $6Mil per. The guaranteed money for Asomugha is boggling. I can't wait till the uncapped year. We'll have to tap into Yankee money to stay competitive.

 

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
