No. I posted a link about this yesterday. Vick got to keep his ROSTER bonus but had to return his SIGNING bonus. There is a difference.

So if we make FD's bonus money all signing bonus, there is no risk, because in the worst case he'll have to return it.

Apologize and thanks for the correction.

Re: Fred Davis May get Franchise Tag

It's all in my blog, which is poorly written and full of made-up insider stuff. Everyone read my blog!

Today's scoop: How we will trade Willie Smith for Aaron Rodgers and 3 first round picks.

Transition Tag- allows player to sign with another club, but gives the team putting the tag on him the right to match the offer and retain him. No compensation is given if team doesn't match.




Davis will be getting the Franchise Tag.

Re: Fred Davis May get Franchise Tag

Franchise Tag = Win/Win.

I'm sure FD would want to sign a contract for more then one yr. The Skins probably wouldn't want to get tied to him for more then one yr until he shows he can lay off the marijuana. By Franchise Tagging him the team is only tied to him for one yr and FD gets the type of money he would want thinking he's top flight.

So in the end its a Win/Win. The plus side is if another team thinks he's top flight also and makes him an offer then they would have to give up some draft picks for him which is also a plus for the Skins.

Re: Fred Davis May get Franchise Tag

interesting. i suppose that's why you don't see many teams using it. and to my understanding, they cannot be used at the same time?
