I am seeing some chatter that the Bills could tag Milano. I think that is crazy talk. Thoughts?

 

Nah, when Beane says he has earned the right to test the market, that means no tag forthcoming. And prolly means they have a number much lower on him than he and his agent are  throwing out there right now to get a deal done before he hits the market.

2021 NFL franchise/transition tag primer: Who are the no-brainers? Debatable candidates?

... Fourteen players were retained using the franchise tag last year, while Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake received the transition tag.

If you need a primer on what the franchise tag and transition tag actually are, check out the handy glossary at the bottom of this article.

 

Teams can first designate franchise or transition tag players on Feb. 23 -- and must do so by March 9. ...
