Status Of All 15 Tagged Players Prior to July 15 Extension Deadline

The clock is ticking for tagged players to sign extensions with their teams, per the league calendar.

July 15: At 4:00 p.m., New York time, deadline for any club that designated a Franchise Player to sign such player to a multiyear contract or extension. After this date, the player may sign only a one-year contract with his prior club for the 2020 season, and such contract cannot be extended until after the club’s last regular season game.

With less than nine days remaining until the deadline, let’s take a look at where each of the 15 tagged players stand.

    Harris, Scherff, and Simmons will likely be extended as young franchise cornerstones.

    I’m willing to bet Henry will as well, but I’m a bit skeptical of extending a runningback with so many carries.

    I have similar sentiments about Drake, but more due to inexperience and small sample size. I would ask him to replicate his production.

    Green and Henry would be okay on a reduced contract, due to age and injury concerns respectively. I’d be content with both Barrett and Judon on a long-term deal, but I’m not sure those teams will engage by the deadline.

    Thuney is talented enough, but Belichick may not prioritize interior lineman. Dupree will likely be let go next season to replenish cap.

    Williams is asking for way too much relative to his actual value. Prescott is as well, but Dallas might need to pay him to secure a franchise quarterback.

    Finally, the Chiefs don’t have the cap space to immediately resign Jones and Ngakoue is likely going to have to go the Le’Veon Bell route.

    That’s just my useless opinion. Thoughts?

      I think you did pretty well. Given the ages and markets for their respective positions, I think you did a good job as far I’m concerned.

      The only thing I could see slightly differently would be to put Barrett together with Drake in the “prove it” category. Their teams both need their previous production of last year, but neither has a history of starting and consistently delivering their 2019 value-despite hints of it in contributory roles with their previous teams. And, for what it’s worth, I really, really liked Barrett in Denver. But if had to, today, sit down and hand him a contract, I couldn’t say that I wouldn’t have some questions about him.

        That’s a fair point. You could risk overpaying for Barrett after a career season. I just thought his production was genuine, as it was supported by advanced metrics. If he duplicates his numbers this season you could run the risk of losing him altogether as his pay demand only increases, but that’s the only legitimate concern

      The Vikings have none to very little cap space. While extending Harris May be the preferred route, they’d have to either cut players or renegotiate a few contracts to make it work.

    Gettleman’s faith and confidence in him. If the Giants had a less-stubborn GM, they would have already cut this chronic underachiever.
    Once on the “open market” Williams would be lucky to land a $3mm deal.

      Leonard Williams has shown nothing but disrespect in the wake of Gettleman’s faith and confidence in him. If the Giants had a less-stubborn GM, they would have already cut this chronic underachiever.
      Once on the “open market” Williams would be lucky to land a $3mm deal.

      I agree that Williams is an underachiever, but he would certainly get more than $3 million. Aside from the gratuitous shot at Gettleman, though, any team would be forced to try and salvage the deal somewhat after spending a fifth and a third in acquiring a player.
