My little tumblr universe is 90% about sports (mostly football), 9% about cars and fashion, and 1% random stuff. I like a lot of teams and players, but I'm partial to the Redskins who I let break my heart every year. Oh yeah, I can be completely silly too.

Update on the 21 NFL teams that used the franchise tag on players in March. Typically, teams use it to keep key players who they may or may not eventually sign to a long-term deal. And the deadline for teams and players to reach a long-term deal is Monday, July 16, 2012 at 4pm EST.

After Monday, players would only be allowed to sign their one-year franchise tender offers. The sides would not be able to negotiate a multi-year extension until after the final regular-season game.

What the 1-year franchise tags are worth for the 6 unsigned players:

  • DB Dashon Goldon, 49ers: $6.2 m
  • RB Ray Rice, Ravens: $7.7 m
  • RB Matt Forte, Bears: $7.7 m
  • WR Dwayne Bowe: Chiefs, $9.5 m
  • DE Cliff Avril, Lions: $10.6 m
  • K Josh Scobee, Jags, $2.9 m

Of course the players who have already signed their franchise tenders are hoping for long-term deals, but Wes Welker seems the only likely prospect that may get a deal done by the deadline.
