03:01 PM ET 02.19 | Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweeted Tuesday afternoon that the New York Giants would "probably not" use the franchise tag on any player, according to owner John Mara. What does that mean? Well, the Giant most likely to have the franchise tag applied would seem to be starting left tackle Will Beatty. This news would indicate that the Giants feel confident they can reach a long-term contract agreement with Beatty and don't need to "tag" him at the expected $9.66 million salary tag number for offensive linemen in 2013.
