02:04 PM ET 02.18 | Today is the first day that NFL teams can use the franchise tag designation on pending free agents. They have until March 4th to the use the tag, so I wouldn't expect any news on guys getting tagged today. Teams will continue to negotiate with the potential franchise players over the next couple weeks before tagging them.

They don't have a reason to use it, maybe they can trade it?

So, what this doofus is really saying is that they won't use it today? Do I understand that right? Like, who cares?

Hate to say it, but the eagles have enough cap space to buy a whole new team.

Imagine being the new head coach of a team with that kind of cap room. I'd never sleep. I'd just watch film, take obsessive notes and make crazy plans.
