Sportsbook Updates on NFL Franchise Tag Players
It is a busy offseason for some teams in the National Football League. They are deciding who to use their franchise tag on. To keep you updated with the latest developments, here’s a list of NFL franchise tag players.
At present, seven teams have used their franchise tags. Once tagged, the player is obligated to stay with the team for one season. Below are the players with franchise tags and why teams decided to keep them for another season.
NFL Franchise Tag Players
- Yannick Ngakoue (Jacksonville) – in his four seasons with the Jaguars, Ngakoue is already the second in the franchise for sacks with 37.5. The team failed to work on a long-term contract for Ngakoue that led to him skipping most of the OTAs and voluntary workouts. Last March 2, he told the team that he didn’t want to sign a long-term deal according to PPH software reports. As a result, the team used its franchise tag on him.
- A.J. Green (Cincinnati) – He tore several ankle ligaments during the first practice in the 2019 preseason. As a result, he was out for the entire year. He missed 23 out of the 24 games. The two parties failed to agree on a deal, which led to the use of the franchise tag.
- Matthew Judon (Baltimore) – The team wants to improve its pass rush this season, and Judon was the only consistent pass-rusher they have in the roster. After using the franchise tag, some analysts speculate that the Ravens might trade him or use the tag as a one-year rental.
- Brandon Scherff (Washington) – He rejected an offer during the season, and coach Ron Rivera considers him as a core of the team. With the franchise tag, the organization offers Scherff the security of having a job despite his injury history.
