An Offseason Without Tags Could Be Free Agent Frenzy

3 Feb

The NFL is saying that it’s okay for teams to hit players with franchise and transition tags before the CBA expires. The NFLPA is saying that these tags would govern players for the 2011 season, and therefore cannot be honored.

This is a massive disagreement. If tags are disallowed, the result could potentially be the greatest free agent frenzy in league history. Without the ability to lock transition and franchise folks, those coveted players would instead be free to shop their services without hindrance. A stud migration could ensue.

Still, there’s a long way to go between now and then. It’s questionable whether owners would break rank and start signing would be franchise players away from other owners.

But tonight anyway, The Bottlenose will dream of Peyton Manning faking the handoff to Deangelo Williams, staring down The Beast, before hitting Vincent Jackson in the corner of the Sun Life end zone.
