Matt Prater has also been franchised. The 4th kicker.

Still waiting for the Dwayne Bowe tag. That will probably be the last one I assume.

Chiefs assigned the franchise tag to WR Dwayne Bowe.
Kansas City waited until there were 20 minutes left before the end of the franchise tag period. The wideout market remains strong, even with Bowe, Wes Welker, Stevie Johnson, and DeSean Jackson returning to their respective teams. Bowe, 27, is rumored to be asking for exorbitant money, pursuing a contract in excess of what Vincent Jackson may receive on the open market. Therefore, it seems likely that Bowe will play the upcoming season on his one-year tender. Bowe set a career-high with 81 receptions in 2011 despite having to play with zero running game and four starts of Tyler Palko. Expect borderline WR1 production in 2012.


Maybe since they waited 20 minutes before the deadline they felt they were close to a deal.

Brandon Carr is obviously a free agent now.

Just in: Colts and Robert Mathis have reached a tentative agreement on a long-term contract. He will not be franchised.

Per league source, Giants franchised punter Steve Weatherford.

That's 5 total kickers. Whee!

I don't get Mathis converting to OLB on a rebuilding team at this point in his career. I don't get it from either side.

I mean, I guess for him it's better signing long term than playing under the franchise tag, but...seems like a stretch to assume him and Freeney are going to be as effective at OLB.

According to one of the Bears beat writers that is pretty dialed in (pretty much never wrong) Avril was their #1 target if he hit free agency. Get a good player, hurt a divisional opponent.

Makes it seem likely they'll go for a DE, but we'll see.

He said their #2 target was Vincent Jackson. Wonder how much money that will take?

Yay! Now we get to see what ridiculous sum of money Jerry Jones throws at him.

It will be a bidding match between the Cowboys and Lions.


At least until Samuel is released (maybe he'll go back to his old team the Pats....).

Please sign V jax its a win win for me and the vikes. It assures us a top 5 pick during the rebuild and might make Cutler worth keeping in FF. PLEAAAAASE!

I'm still holding out hope for the Jackson/Floyd WR combo.

The Drunken Duo.

They could have a sitcom.

It'd probably render Ebert speechless.

Oh wait.
