With the NFL Franchise Tag deadline coming at 4, teams were faced with difficult decisions that could affect the future of their franchise. Do you sign a player like Arian Foster to a 5-year deal worth $43.5 million, with $20.75 million guaranteed and limit your teams’ ability to not only sign other free agents, but keep your free agents like DE Mario Williams, who’s now expected to sign with another team as the Texans don’t have enough cap space to offer him an adequate deal? Do the Chargers place the franchise tag on a player like WR Vincent Jackson, which would cost the team $13 million because they’ve already used the tag on him before, or do you let him walk and get nothing for him? These are the kinds of decision NFL general managers are having to make today in order to ensure their teams stay competitive, while also staying under the NFL Salary cap.
