49ers | No franchise tag likely for Phil Dawson

It is not likely the San Francisco 49ers will use the franchise tag on K Phil Dawson. Dawson was tagged twice before by the Cleveland Browns in 2011 and 2012, and under NFL rules a player tagged for a third time is entitled to a quarterback franchise tender. That could send his salary upwards of $16 million.
