The deadline for NFL teams to place a franchise tag on a player and keep him from free agency has come and gone. Teams waited until the last few days to make final decisions due to possible changes in the new collective bargaining agreement. The rules surrounding the franchise tag largely stayed the same, but teams can now only give out one tag total per season. The franchise tag allows a team to keep a player on a top-dollar contract for one year. The player can play out that contract or the two sides can agree to a multiyear contract by July 15. Matthew Judon, EDGE, RavensTag: Non-exclusiveProjected cost: $15.8The Ravens tagged Judon on March 13 to ensure their team leader in sacks didn’t hit the open market. Many have suspected Baltimore might trade Judon instead of spending the money to sign him long term. Last season, the Chiefs placed the franchise tag on Dee Ford and then traded him to the 49ers for a second-round pick. The Chiefs also gave up a first-round pick to acquire Frank Clark from the Seahawks after he was tagged. The same scenario could play out for Judon. MORE: What, exactly, is the franchise tag?13 players received the non-exclusive franchise tag, meaning players can negotiate elsewhere but the team that applied the tag can match any other team’s offer. If the original team doesn’t match the offer, it receives two first-round picks. The Cowboys placed the exclusive franchise tag on quarterback Dak Prescott, meaning he is unable to negotiate with other teams. Kenyan Drake received the transition tag from the Cardinals, which means other teams can offer Drake a contract but the Cardinals have the right to match it, although they don’t receive any compensation if they choose not to.Sporting News tracked the players who received the franchise tag in 2020.Derrick HenryTag: Non-exclusiveProjected cost: $10.3 millionThe Titans weren’t about to let the NFL’s most dominant runner and reigning rushing champion walk and drain the lifeblood of their offense. He was a no-brainer tag once Tannehill was locked down. Henry will eventually get around $15-$16 million a season when the long-term deal goes down this summer, matching or surpassing what the Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott got.Dak PrescottTag: ExclusiveProjected cost: $31.5 millionThe Cowboys needed to get their place-holder in before the tag deadline. Although it seems Prescott and the team should have had a deal by now, this buys time into the summer to give him his bank-breaking long-term deal. He’s their unquestioned franchise QB for many more seasons. Dallas simply got an extension on the extension until July 15.Leonard Williams, DE, GiantsTag: Non-exclusiveProjected cost: $16.1 millionThe Giants had to do this after trading multiple picks to get him from the Jets last midseason. Williams is a solid player for their 3-4 scheme, but he was well short of spectacular during his short stint. They’re paying him thinking he’ll do more with additional help in a better group for new defensive coordinator Patrick Graham.Anthony Harris, S, VikingsTag: Non-exclusiveProjected cost: $11.4 millionMinnesota got aggressive with other defensive cuts (Linval Joseph, Xavier Rhodes) and a big Cousins restructure to ensure it had enough room to keep Harris roaming around and making big plays next to Harrison Smith in the secondary. Again, like Simmons, the price tag was too favorable not to bring him back at a key position for Mike Zimmer’s defense.Shaquil Barrett, Edge, BuccaneersTag: Non-exclusiveProjected cost: $15.83The Bucs stole Barrett in last year’s free agency when he moved on from the Broncos. He led the league with 19.5 sacks, excelling in the 3-4 scheme of Todd Bowles. He was worthy to go from bargain to splurge as he turns only 28 in November.Kenyan Drake, RB, CardinalsTag: TransitionProjected cost: $8.5 millionArizona made the questionable midseason trade for Drake, only to see him take control of the backfield and take off as an explosive, productive runner in Kliff Kingsbury’s scheme after being underused in Miami. it’s a bonus the Cardinals were also able to move David Johnson.Joe Thuney, OG, PatriotsTag: Non-exclusiveProjected cost: $14.8 millionThis was surprising for sure as everyone expected New England to let Thuney walk with limited cap space, especially if it could possibly bring back Tom Brady. But Thuney is an absolute force and an asset who keeps the strength of the Patriots’ power running game intact.A.J. Green, WR, BengalsTag: Non-exclusiveProjected cost: $17.9 millionGreen missed all of last season with an ankle injury and he is going into his age 32 season. Although he presumably will remain a key veteran target for Joe Burrow, $18 million is a lot to invest in one aging, recovering player, despite his pedigree and high level of past success.Chris Jones, DT, ChiefsTag: Non-exclusiveProjected cost: $16.1The Chiefs have enough room to keep Jones and also work on that extension for Patrick Mahomes. Jones is indispensable to their defense and is almost as key to their chances to repeat as Super Bowl champions.Bud Dupree, OLB, SteelersTag: Non-exclusiveProjected cost: $15.8 millionDupree did have a career-high 11.5 sacks last season and might have been hard to replace, but the Steelers are a bit cap-stapped and could have let him walk and found a fair replacement in the draft. They chose not to mess around with their pass-rush mojo, however.Brandon Scherff, RG, RedskinsTag: Non-exclusiveProjected cost: $14.8 millionWashington placed the franchise tag on Scherff on Saturday. Scherff will play the 2020 season on a one year contract after a long term extension wasn’t agreed upon. The former No. 5 overall pick out of Iowa has made the Pro Bowl in three of his first five seasons but has also struggled with injury, missing 21 games over the last three seasons. The two sides can still negotiate a contract extension until July 15, but it remains to be seen if a deal will get done. Scherff is one of the best guards in the league and will come with a hefty price tag. The team is already down another Pro Bowl offensive linemen after Trent Williams didn’t play in 2019 due to disagreements with the team’s medical staff, so it makes sense the Redskins ensure they don’t lose another.Hunter Henry, TE, ChargersTag: Non-exclusiveProjected cost: $10.6 millionThe Chargers didn’t want to let Henry get away for nothing. Philip Rivers is done in Los Angeles, but whoever is under center next for the Chargers could use a threat at tight end like Henry. He missed the entire 2018 season because of an injury and wasn’t able to stay healthy in 2019, either. Still, he had 55 catches for 652 yards and five touchdowns in 12 games last year. Yannick Ngakoue, DE, JaguarsTag: Non-exclusiveProjected cost: $17.8 millionThe franchise tag for Ngakoue will eat up half of Jacksonville’s projected $34 million in cap space, but the Jaguars seem to think it’s worth it. They selected Ngakoue in the third round in 2016, and he has turned into a huge success with 37.5 sacks in 63 games. Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said after the season that signing Ngakoue to an extension was “priority No. 1,” but Ngakoue announced on Twitter that the Jaguars know he doesn’t have an interest in re-signing with them and “looks forward to continuing my career somewhere else.” The Jaguars have holes all over the field; losing Ngakoue would obviously create another one.Justin Simmons, S, BroncosTag: Non-exclusiveProjected cost: $11.4 millionBroncos president John Elway said the franchise tag is just a “placeholder” until the team can agree on a long term deal with Simmons. The franchise tag for a safety is roughly $12.7 million, according to Over The Cap, which will be a big jump from the $2 million Simmons made in 2019. Simmons took a big leap last season, grabbing a career-high four interceptions and recording 15 passes defended on his way to a second-team All-Pro selection.
A slowdown that comes when he was achieving continuity playing as second tip. Your global statistics: six goals (four in the League and two in the Champions), one every 354 minutes and three assists, which are already on par with Agüero’s in its first year, with a total of seven goals (six in the league and one in the cup) in 2,634 minutes, one every 376. What’s more, João Félix’s goal scoring debut in the Champions League against Lokomotiv at 19 years and 325 days, served to break Agüero’s record, at 20 years and 106 days, as Atlético’s youngest scorer in the top European competition. Kun did so in Eindhoven in his competition debut against PSV in the club’s third season.Golden boyBut if something makes clear the expectations that the world of football has set for João Félix was the delivery of the Golden Boy as the best footballer under the age of 21 in a calendar year. The second Atlético player to win the award after precisely the Kun Agüero in 2007, beating Messi and Cesc Fàbregas in the vote. A very prestigious trophy that has been obtained by those who are now the best players in the world. João Félix so far has been following in the footsteps of Kun Agüero, but now he has before him the most difficult challenge, having the continuity of the Argentine. After those first months of acclimatization under the shadow of Fernando Torres, Something that João Félix was apparently going to have this year with Diego Costa according to what was seen in the preseason but that has not been the case, Kun assumed the team’s stripes to become a completely decisive player. MACARIO MUÑOZ & nbsp; (DIARIO AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Kun Agüero, after scoring Villarreal in his first season at Atlético.MACARIO MUÑOZ (DAILY AS) And the Portuguese is following in the wake of the Argentine on his arrival at the club, with a first year of learning to meet all the expectations placed on his signing. João Félix, like Agüero, left a most exciting preseason, clarifying the reason why Atlético decided to make the largest investment in its history for its services. Although the amount of the transfer serves to show the inflation of soccer and the increase in the mattress’s economic power. If Kun happened to be the most expensive signing in Red and White history in 2006 for 23 million that the club paid to Argentinian Independiente when the player was only 18 years old, the amount of João Félix this summer shot up to 127.2 million paid to Benfica by the 19-year-old footballer.But already in official competition, João Félix’s season is going from less to more. The Portuguese started the course displaced to the right wing and participating very little in the game, although leaving flashes of its quality such as the play in his debut against Getafe to cause a penalty, his assistance to Vitolo on the second day or his goal to Eibar on the third. Same day in which Agüero premiered as a rojiblanco scorer. The Argentine scored his first goal with Atlético in San Mamés on the third day of the League after starting the course as a regular substitute with the idea of Aguirre to start giving him little by little. CHEMA DIAZ & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>João Félix celebrates with Koke his goal against Villarreal.CHEMA DIAZ (DAILY AS) Forming attack partner with Forlán, Agüero finished with 30 goals in 53 games in his second season after leaving an extraordinary U-20 World Cup, a summer tournament to claim that João Félix will not be able to explode due to the postponement of the Euro Cup to 2021 by the Coronavirus. From that second year, Kun was an unstoppable footballer, who commanded in LaLiga and who met all the expectations presented on his arrival until signing for Manchester City.At Atlético João Félix is expected to continue progressing with Agüero’s mirror. Two different players, who when they catch the ball lift the spectator from the seat and generate illusion in the stands. From the Portuguese, he is trusted to work until he becomes the footballer who by quality has already made it clear that he can become. Atlético once again has a world promise in its squad, a player called to dominate football in the future despite being only 20 years old. Since Kun Agüero, who left the rojiblanco team in the summer of 2011, the rojiblanco team did not have such a young figure with so much depth in their squad until the arrival of João Félix eight years after his goodbye. Two diamonds in the rough that stand out for their talent and quality with the ball. An ownership that João Félix has had from the first day, but in the case of the Portuguese it has been the injuries that have slowed his participation in the team, with two long injuries of one month each. So far it has disputed 2,124 minutes in 28 games, 24 of them as a starter. Since his return to the team after overcoming a muscle injury, João Félix saw the door against Villarreal and against Sevilla, in addition to assisting Marcos Llorente in the first of his goals against Liverpool. Two goals and one assist in four games before the halt caused by the global coronavirus pandemic.
