Franchise Tag Candidates
Joel Corry of CBS Sports takes a look at a number of players who could be headed for the franchise tag in 2016 and offers some projections for what it will cost teams.
Here Corry’s the list of candidates:
- Broncos OLB Von Miller
- Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson
- Panthers CB Josh Norman
- Bears WR Alshon Jeffery
- Chiefs S Eric Berry
- Chiefs CB Sean Smith
- Ravens K Justin Tucker
- Redskins QB Kirk Cousins
- Browns TE Gary Barnidge
- Browns S Tashaun Gipson
- Raiders WR Michael Crabtree
Corry offers a detailed breakdown of each team and player, so I highly recommend reading the full article if you’re interested.
