Who didn’t get the franchise tag?
S Landon Collins, New York Giants: In a surprise, the Giants reportedly don’t plan to tag their do-everything, three-time Pro Bowl safety. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network said the Giants believed the tag number, which is more than $11.1 million, was too high. If Collins, who just turned 25, hits the market he’ll be one of the top available defenders.
LB C.J. Mosley, Baltimore Ravens: Mosley has made the Pro Bowl in four of his five NFL seasons, but the Ravens seem willing to let him test the market. ESPN’s Adam Schefter said the Ravens don’t plan to use the tag on Mosley. There should be plenty of demand for the play-making three-down linebacker.
Collins would almost complete our backfield personnel by helping that other CB on the other side from Ward with talented support (tackling, intelligence, leadership) and, Mosley would enhance our front seven by 50% with speed, tenacity and instinctive play. Regardless of the cost or how far we are from Dorsey's finished product this would be a good investment for the future with the addition of these two young superb players jmho.
