The deadline for teams to use franchise and transition tags on impending free agents passed at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday with six of them handed out.
Six teams opted to use the tags this year. Five of them went for franchise tags and one transition tag was also used before the deadline passed. The players who received the tag are:
Defensive end Ziggy Ansah, Lions Ansah’s tag carries the same $17.1 million salary that Lawrence is now set to make. He has not signed the tender at this point, however.
Authentic Riley Nash Jersey Safety Lamarcus Joyner, Rams After tagging cornerback Trumaine Johnson the last two years, the Rams chose to tag Joyner Womens Theoren Fleury Jersey over wide receiver Sammy Watkins. He has not signed the $11.2 million tender.
Cornerback Kyle Fuller, Bears The Bears opted for the transition tag, which calls for Fuller to make $12.9 million if he does not work out a long-term deal. It also gives the Bears the right to match other offers for his services, but does not come with the compensation of two first-round picks afforded by the franchise tag.
Game Youth Cole Beasley Jersey According to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, the Bills are interested in Vikings free agent Sam Bradford.
Adding Bradford would clearly seem to be step one in the process, with parlaying some of their draft capital into a rookie a logical step two.
Bradford played just two games last year because of his knee issues, so any team investing in the 30-year-old better have a solid backup plan in place.
The Bills are also expected to keep tabs on the Case Keenum situation, as they need a certain level to keep them at a playoff level.
When BB used to trade his top players in the last year of their contract for picks, people called it genius. Well, is Garoppolo for a 2d-round pick genius Anyway, Trader Bill is also doing the reverse trading picks for players including lately for contract-ending players. Do you agree with this rental strategy based on the results it produced so far In my view, only Cooks was a fair deal.
