Kraken must be FT'd and moved early in the process for substantially less than the tag requires. Don't be fugging greedy people.
This is the key here.
Teams are no oblivious to our team, its needs and its cap space.
They know we will struggle to keep a intact core if we have pay hard the franchise tag.
Something like a pair of seconds (14/15), a 1st and a pair of 3rds (14, 14, 15) an early second (14, Raiders/Jacksonville). Would be an excellent compensation for a player we picked in the 6th, got insane production vs compensation value, and likely can't afford to keep.
