Dolphins | Handful of UFAs unlikely to receive tag
Sun, 03 Mar 2013 20:16:29 -0800
The Miami Dolphins might still use the franchise tag before the deadline Monday, March 4. However, general manager Jeff Ireland preaches value, and he has worked to clear $45 million in salary-cap space to use this spring. Impending free-agents OT Jake Long would host $15 million with the tag, while CB Sean Smith ($10.9 million), WR Brian Hartline ($9.9 million) and RB Reggie Bush ($7.9 million) also seem unlikely to get the designation.
