NFL franchise tag tracker

The LA Rams are not expected to use the franchise tag in 2021. But we can’t entirely rule it out with regards to John Johnson and while the deadline was meant to be Tuesday, that could be delayed until after the NFL settles its TV deal negotiations.

The franchise tag has been applied to Bears receiver Allen Robinson, Bucs receiver Chris Godwin, Giants defensive end Leonard Williams (disputed), Washington guard Brandon Scherff, Panthers tackle Taylor Moton, Jaguars tackle Cam Robinson, Broncos safety Justin Simmons, Saints safety Marcus Williams, and Jets safety Marcus Maye. The Cowboys are expected to tag QB Dak Prescott even though they already agreed to a new four-year contract extension, because of technical matters.

We’ll keep track of those and all the non-tags as the news trickles in this week.

Saints tag S Marcus Williams

The Saints weren’t expected to use the tag because of financial constraints, but they’ve applied it to Williams. He is the third safety tagged, but mum is the word on the Rams and Johnson.

Bears tag WR Allen Robinson

Bucs tag WR Chris Godwin

Godwin isn’t going anywhere without the acquiring team paying a hefty price.

Linebackers Shaq Barrett and Lavonte David will now become free agents, barring an extension with Tampa Bay prior to March 17.

Washington tags G Brandon Scherff

That’s two years in a row for Scherff.

Jets tag S Marcus Maye

Broncos tag S Justin Simmons

Several safeties were tagged last year. It could be that the players at the position and the NFL are not in agreement with regards to how valuable they are on a long-term deal.

Giants tag DL Leonard Williams?

This was later refuted on Tuesday morning by GM Dave Gettleman.

Chargers will NOT tag TE Hunter Henry

Henry should make at least $11 million per year as a free agent tight end.

Lions will NOT tag WR Kenny Golladay

The blockbuster move for the Rams would be to reunite Golladay with Matthew Stafford somehow. Golladay and Stafford were described as having a special relationship in Detroit.

Falcons will NOT tag S Keanu Neal

Will the Rams replace Johnson with Raheem Morris’s safety from Atlanta?

Jaguars tag OT Cam Robinson

Not many were expecting Robinson to get tagged, but this is how shallow the pool of quality tackles is.

Panthers tag OT Taylor Moton

Exhibit B.

Patriots will NOT tag G Joe Thuney

Steelers will NOT tag LB Bud Dupree

Dupree and Thuney were both on the tag last year but will become free agents this year.

Seahawks will NOT tag RB Chris Carson

Cardinals will NOT tag LB Haason Reddick

Ravens will NOT tag anybody

Two pass rushers from Baltimore are set to hit the market.

Titans will NOT tag TE Jonnu Smith
