To Tag or Not to Tag?


During this lull in football news, the only thing that has been semi-interesting to follow is how teams are dealing with players that have been tagged. (And, I have been following the whole Wes Welker saga because that is all the ESPN AFC East blog seems to care about lately.)

I began to think, 'This stinks. I wish the Bills had some sort of Franchise Tag drama to follow.' But then I said, 'Self, maybe it is good that the Bills do not have any Franchise Tag drama because they were very effective in managing their free agents.' I continued, 'If the front office was so effective that they did not even need to use the Tag, should they be rewarded for this?' Then I became nervous, 'Should we have used the Tag? If so, then on whom?'

After a quick search, I learned that 21 out of 32 teams used the Franchise Tag. So, it seems that most teams do use it. But, what about the teams that did not use it? Shouldn't they be rewarded in some way for effective player management? Is there a penalty for using it and not signing the player at the deadline (aside from the large, one-year contract)? Is it bad that we did not use the Tag? I figure if there is any place that I could get quality and thoughtful answers, this would be the place. Thoughts?

Anyway. A little over a week until camp! Woo hoo!

Go Bills.
