No big shocker here, we can make this our FA/FT thread.

Little surprised about the Akers transition tag.

Logan Mankins got the franchise tag by the Patriots (10 million I believe)

David Harris expected to be tagged by the Jets

Woodley by the Steelers (unfortunately)

I think Greenway will possibly get tagged by the Vikings, while Rice gets a transition tag

Thanks for the link. Apparently it's something that hasn't been used very much in the recent past due to having a salary cap. I suppose we'll see it used more often in the future, but I'm sure the players don't care much for it.

These are all pretty meaningless now without free agency and a new CBA. I'm sure that a provision of the new agreement (whenever it happens) will be that all existing tags will be voided but most of those players will be 're-tagged' with whatever the new tags and terms are.

Do we even have anyone who is worth considering using a franchise or transition tag on?

Well transition tags don't require compensation, so technically we could get him.

Carlos is worth a consideration. I wouldnt at this point, would like a long term deal with him. Lotta teams are putting them on cause of the uncertainty of a lack of a CBA. Once that is done, the tag will be removed and long term contracts will be signed with some of these guys.
