NFL Franchise Tag Tracker: Who’s Been Tagged?

Mandatory Credit: Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

If you just got done reading our explanation of the NFL franchise tag for dummies (and you haven’t then go read it), you already have a pretty good idea of how the tag works. Learning all that mumbo-jumbo is like working out really hard then treating yourself with a giant Dairy Queen ice cream cake. The explanation of how complicated the franchise tag is was the hard work out, finding out who’s been tagged and who still has their tag is the ice cream cake.

Let us feast:

First off, Joe Flacco and Ryan Clady are viewed as virtual certainties when it comes to who’s getting tagged, as barring a long term deal before Sunday the Ravens and Broncos would be crazy to allow either of those players to hit the open market without at least a non-exclusive tag. Similar sentiment has been shared by the Chicago Bears regarding Harry Melton but beyond that it’s anyone’s guess as to who will be tagged and who won’t be.

Melton may end up being the only player in the NFC tagged, but there is talk of the Packers using it as well as the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants. But if tagging happens, the bulk of whatever action that goes down will be on the AFC side of things Tennessee (Jared Cook), Miami (Ryan Starks), New England (Sebastian Vollmer) and Houston (Glover Quinn) could all tag players before Monday’s deadline.
