Geoff Mosher of CSN Philly he’s been informed that the Philadelphia Eagles have no intention of using their franchise tag this offseason.
Mosher adds that CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is only player they would even consider.
Rodgers-Cromartie, 26, is set to become an unrestricted free agent in the next few weeks, but applying their franchise tag to him would run the Eagles $10.7 million next season. They could always negotiate a long-term deal to lower that figure, but it appears as though they’re ok with him testing the market.
There’s a decent enough chance that he’ll be playing elsewhere next season.
We have Rodgers-Cromartie listed as the No. 44 best available player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
