NFL teams can now use the franchise tag but the Browns have no use for it in 2021
Tuesday is the first day NFL teams use the franchise or transition tags for pending free agent players. Teams have until March 9th to use the tags and secure their talent on one-year, fully-guaranteed contracts.
There will be some prominent players in the league that will be tagged. The Cowboys are expected to use the Franchise Tag for QB Dak Prescott, the Buccaneers for WR Chris Godwin, and the Lions for WR Kenny Golladay. But the Cleveland Browns have no use for the label this 2021 off-season.
Cleveland's most prominent freelance agents are WR Rashard Higgins, LB B. J. Goodson, CBs Kevin Johnson and Terrance Mitchell, and Security Karl Joseph. While all of these players have real value, none are anywhere near a day's worth.
Pay attention to what the rival Bengals do with their tags. Cincinnati has two top notch freelance agents that the Browns should definitely be interested in if they go free in CB William Jackson and DE Carl Lawson.
