TIME TO PLAY TAG

With free agency only three weeks away, the time is coming for NFL teams to decide whether to use the franchise tag on any of the unrestricted free agents (or restricted free agents) to be.

According to Adam Schefter of NFL Network, the franchise-tag period opens on February 7, and continues until February 21.

The tag gives the team a right of first refusal as to any offer sheet signed by the player. If the team chooses not to match the offer, the team gets two first-round draft picks as compensation.

The tags are going to fall like rain after Thursday. Why? John Clayton's been all over ESPN radio talking about the record projected '08 salary cap and the record number of teams that are going to be at least $20 million under the cap (18). Clayton said pretty much each and every high profile FA would be tagged with the exception of guys whose contract prevented it - Samuel and Briggs. The good news - the Saints have the 6th most available cap space at $31.69 million. The bad news - there are 24 other teams that will have at least $10 million in cap space. They desperately need to be aggressive and ready to write a sizable contract or two........

I've been looking for accurate cap space analysis. It looks like you have it. Where did you find the info?

How do they get 20 million over the cap, that can't be easy to do. Well if Wasington can make a splash with -20 cap space, then we should be able to do something with our 30 million.
