Today starts the two-week franchise tag window. The first "official" jump into the off-season.

I doubt we will use it...

I think the last time we used it was on a kicker (Mare, I think?)

Here is the free agent list. We all know the PC/JS combo will not overpay for a player. So what player earned being payed the top 5 cash last year?

Leroy Hill
Alan Branch
Patrick Chukwurah
Steven Hauschka
Jason Jones
Ryan Longwell
Cameron Morrah
Frank Omiyale
Marcus Trufant

I would say none of these guys were even close to being the top 5 of their position. Most of theses guys were hurt at some point or is hurt. Maybe tag Hill for need reasons.

Kicker would make a lot of sense, if I'm not mistaken the franchise tag isn't even guaranteed so if they cut Hauschka because we got a better kicker there is no loss.

The franchise tag for a tackle is over 7 million, I hope you're kidding mentioning Jason Jones.

I heard about this on the radio in regards to Flacco. I guess Baltimore can re-sign him in 2 weeks or have to use the franchise tag. Now are they allowed to negotiate a long-term deal after using the franchise tag? I am pretty sure there are some specific limits on that but not sure if there are windows where it can be done.

So how is that Seahawks relevant? Because after next year Sherman is up. The interesting thing is you can't re-sign him now like you could with Flacco or other veterans. You cannot sign him until after next season. So there is very limited value in negotiating now. If Sherman believes (I think he does) that he will play at the same level or better next season he will want to wait with negotiations to increase his leverage. Say the Seahawks go deep in the playoffs that would mean starting negotiations for a very large contract at the end of January and if you don't have it done by beginning of March you may be stuck with a franchise tag.

Well after writing all that I found that Sherman has a four-year deal just like RW and are non eligible for 3 years. So I believe the rookies can sign 3 or 4 year deals depending on circumstances so it will be interesting to see how players signing 3 years are getting deals done in the limited time available

Hope not...I am hoping neither of them are on the team next year.

Hauschka if they cannot sign him might make sense.

Wes Welker hasn't been franchised by the Patriots. Would the Seahawks be interested and could they afford him?

Yeah, well some of us want to win, NOW! You can't let a dude like Morrah walk if you want to win. Hell, same goes for Tru and Hill. JS really mismanaged this by allowing those 3 to hit the market this year.

If only they had last to Rams in '10.

Welker is good, but I think they are ok with Baldwin. I see them looking at D. Walker at TE from SF. I don't think SF will tag him. I have my eye on a TE as the drop off after miller. Both of the backups drop the ball too much and lack the speed walker has

LOL Yes from jail.

I like TE D. Walker from SF also. The Swiss Army Knife is what they call him. The man can lay the wood on ST.

I can't think of anybody we should use the TAG on this year. None of the other posters have named anyone worthy as of yet.

Leroy is not worth $9.4+ million in my opinion. Frankly, he needs to be replaced by someone with more speed.

Arthur Brown. Some are downgrading him for his lack of size. (sound familiar)?
He's faster'n hell and is a baller.
