Speaking Tuesday, Bears GM Ryan Pace admitted impending free agent Allen Robinson could be franchise tagged. “We have a ton of respect for Allen,” Pace claimed. “We have to do what’s best for the Bears too. We consider everything. ... No firm decision on that yet, but we know we have it at our disposal. We want to keep our good players and Allen is a good player for us.” Long frustrated better long-term offers have not been forthcoming, Robinson has unsurprisingly seemed unenthused about the prospect of the tag. It is possible the Bears could be planning on a tag-and-trade, but their M.O. is generally to go for it. They have one more week to mull the tag. https://www.nbcsports.com/edge/football ... /headlines
Speaking Tuesday, Packers GM Brian Gutekunst said the franchise tag is an option for impending free agent Aaron Jones. "It's very much case by case," Gutekunst said after maligning that there are "usually better ways to avoid it." 26 with his one real chance to get paid as an NFLer, Jones is not going to be handing out hometown discounts. That means the tag will be all but inevitable if the Pack want to keep him, either as a one-year stopgap or as a stepping stone to a long-term deal before July's deadline. Unlike some positions, the tag is highly affordable from a team perspective for running backs, checking in around $8 million.
