The Dallas Cowboys officially placed the franchise tag on potential free-agent linebacker Anthony Spencer, guaranteeing him $8.8 million for next season.

Thanks to a thin linebacker pool they said they had no choice. UGH!

Cincy put the Franchise on our FGKR,[personaly? he lost 2 games for us last year.]

The only other time I've heard of a FG kicker getting the franchise tag was Vinatieri with the Pats and I think they did it twice with him.
