More Top Players get the Franchise Tag

The uncertainty surrounding the current NFL collective bargaining agreement seems to be having a major effect on the decision making of the teams, with several high profile players being tagged this week.

The latest additions to what is fast becoming a who’s who of top talent includes Baltimores DT Haloti Ngata, Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick, and most surprisingly Colts Star QB Peyton Manning. Admittedly both Vick and Manning have received the “exclusive” designation preventing them from entering talks with other teams, however if the Collective Bargaining agreement does end in a lock out then a free for all could erupt in the NFL and deep pocketed franchises such as Washington could make a move.

Our view is that none of the franchise tagged players mentioned will be allowed to go and they will all be in their respective teams in 2011, still its a funny game football especially where money is involved.
