Nope, the Franchise tag for safeties would only go up slightly, maybe 200,000 or 300,000 dollars, so that's definitely an option, especially if he's still looking for a deal worth 8million a year. However, it would be the last year we could use it on him. Hopefully some of our younger guys, like Trenton Robinson, will be getting some good learning experience. Not sure if he'd be ready to go next year as I haven't heard much about him, but at safety we're really lacking depth. Something we should be able to shore up in the off season, whether through draft or FA.
