I suspect the franchise tag to be used a shitload this year like it was last year.

People like Ray Lewis, Brandon Jacobs, Houshmandzadeh, Matt Birk come to mind as likely candidates.

Wonder how the uncapped year will factor in as far as the franchise tag usage? Maybe a lot of teams will use the FT then let the guy walk in the uncapped year thinking the money will be too silly?

As an aside, I HATE the time period between minicamp and TC the most. It drags so much.

I don't see an uncapped year. Once a new head of the players union is in place, I see a new CBA being put in place.
