Dolphins | Jake Long may not get franchise tag

Placing the franchise tag on prospective free-agent OT Jake Long could be too expensive for the Miami Dolphins. Due to Long's salary-cap number this season being higher than the franchise number for offensive linemen, the Dolphins would have to franchise him at 120 percent of this year's salary. Thus, Long's franchise tag would be $15,365,952, according to league sources. Long could test the market this offseason as a free agent.
