NFL Franchise-Tag Possibilities Who Should Hit the Free-Agent Market

As most know by now, the 2016 NFL fiscal year begins on March 9 at 4:00 p.m. ET.

On March 1 (coincidentally by 4:00 p.m. ET), some teams will slap the franchise or possibly the transition tag on potential unrestricted free agents.

But in some of those instances, that may not be the right thing to do based on a number of factors, from a lack of proven performance by a player to a team having its own issues with its own salary cap to perhaps a fellow potential free agent who may be a better choice to get the tag.

Understand that we are not doubting the talents of these players. Quite the opposite. Just keep in mind that placing the franchise or transition tag on a performer is simply a business decision and an important one, especially for team that has quite a few players to re-sign (Will Brinson of CBS Sports has the numbers when it comes to both tags).

Decisions. Decisions.
