Franchise Tag/Transition Tag

Recommended Posts

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 Transition tags can be rescinded, however, teams that rescind a transition tag cannot use it again until the next season.
