2016 NFL Franchise/Transition Tag Players

The deadline to designate franchise or transition players for 2016 has now passed, and 10 players received tags, which represents a modest increase over the last couple offseasons. Here’s a breakdown of the action:

Franchise players (exclusive):NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Denver Broncos

Franchise players (non-exclusive):

Transition players:

Candidates who didn’t receive tags:

Players who received franchise or transition tags can sign those one-year tenders, if they so choose — signing a tender ensures that it can’t be rescinded by a player’s team. Tagged players can also negotiate long-term agreements with their own teams anytime before July 15th.

With the exception of Von Miller, who got an exclusive franchise tag, tagged players can sign offer sheets with an outside suitor once free agency officially begins next week, as long as they haven’t yet signed their franchise or transition tender. If any tagged player signs an offer sheet with a new club, his current club would have five days to match that offer.
