Here are the players who got tagged at the deadline:
Patriots WR Wes Welker
Welker would have been one of the top free agent receivers to hit the market, but the Pats opted to use the tag to ensure Welker would remain a Patriot.
Cowboys DE/OLB Anthony Spencer
Spencer has been a solid player for the Cowboys, racking up 266 total tackles, 21.5 sacks, and 10 forced fumbles in five seasons withDallas.
Broncos Kicker Matt Prater
Prater became the kicker to get the franchise tag, showing the how important team believe accurate kickers are to have, especially ones in the clutch, but aren’t willing to give them long-term deals, as they have shown they can lose their confidence and become useless.
Jaguars tag Kicker Josh Scobee
“Scobee Bryant” has been one of the most clutch kickers in the NFL since 2004 (his rookie year), marked by his kick in Week 4 of the 2010 season in which Scobee made a 59-yard game-winning field goal on the final play of the game to beat the Indianapolis Colts 31-28.
