With just days left before the deadline for teams to give the player a franchise tag (March 1st), the first player has finally been tagged (according to his agent):
The Baltimore Ravens have placed the franchise designation on client Justin Tucker. #franchisetag #Ravens— Robert S. Roche (@rsrsports) February 26, 2016
It is always funny to me when teams slap the franchise tag on a kicker, but I get it. Tucker has been arguably the best kicker in the league for the last couple of years (PFF has him graded 1st).
Now the Titans weren't going to be in on Tucker, they have a good one in Ryan Succop, but this is interesting because it is the first domino to fall. It always seems like they come in quickly after the first one is done. As Titans fans we will be keeping our eye out for news on guys like Eric Berry, Alshon Jeffery, and Doug Martin.
