We’ll use this thread to keep track of and discuss team decisions on 2020 franchise tags. There have been a number of “team will franchise player X” stories in the news but today the first actual tag announcement came out, Baltimore Ravens OLB Matthew Judon. Judon getting tagged as a linebacker instead of as a defensive end will cost him some money. The new CBA really should make things fair by changing the designations to interior defensive lineman, edge rusher, and off-ball linebacker.
We’ll keep a running list of franchise tags here:
Baltimore OLB Matthew Judon
Denver FS Justin Simmons
Jacksonville DE Yannick Ngakoue
Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry
