Franchise Tag/Transition Tag

6 posts in this topic

Hi everybody,

I have a question regarding to franchise and transition tag...

I know that we can't place 2 players with franchise tag but can we place one with franchise and other with transition tag....

If we can and we can't reach an agreement with Gross may be it would make more sense to tag him with transition tag so at least we would get the first refusal right....

I know with poison pills, that doesn't mean much but it is better let him go before knowing his market value.....

Since when can you franchise 2 players in the same year?

I was assuming that he meant 1 franchise and 1 transition = 2, but I could be wrong...

Just one or the other.

Every year each National Football League team is allowed to designate a player who is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent as a franchise player. This designation is applied to a player through the use of the franchise tag. Each team has access each year to only one franchise tag (of either the exclusive or non-exclusive forms) or one transition tag. As a result, each team may only designate one player each year as that team's franchise player.

A transition tag is a tool used by National Football League teams to retain unrestricted free agents. It guarantees the original club the right of first refusal to match any offer the player may make with another team. The transition tag can be used once a year by each club unless they elect to use a franchise tag instead. Transition tags can be rescinded, however, teams that rescind a transition tag cannot use it again until the next season.

      Some people think Bo is a pretty fair comparison.

      Didn't Lennie clock a faster top speed than Ted Ginn this year?

    • It's amazing to me that this forum has always been gloves off, but ever since November, sensitivity, not just here but EVERYWHERE, is at an all-time high.  Everyone wants to be mad, everyone wants to be outraged, and everyone is being victimized. TBH, when you have a leader that perpetuates constant chaos and employs vitriol as his only means of communication, don't be surprised when the citizenry adopts that same style of hysteria as a way of life. It's just where we are.  I don't approve of anyone wishing harm on others, nor do I think anything gets solved with name-calling or aggressive finger pointing, but those things have always happened, especially in the TB.  I think the difference is everything is so emotionally-charged both in sending and receiving messages.  IMO, it started with politics and has bled over into everything else...  same crap keeps happening in the main forum - people disagree, people don't like that others disagree with them and beg for them to be silenced or attacked.   Oh well, welcome to 2017.
