Ravens undecided on franchise tag for Adalius Thomas

Feb 16, 2007 at 7:21 AM--

According to the Baltimore Sun, the Baltimore Ravens are attempting to figure out if they have enough room under the cap to throw the franchise tag on All-Pro linebacker Adalius Thomas.

Placing the franchise tag on Thomas will guarantee him $7.2 million this year. However, the Ravens only have $3 million available to spend. They are expected to clear about $3.3 million by cutting running back Jamal Lewis.

From the Baltimore Sun:
Asked if the Ravens have to make cap room to use the tag, general manager Ozzie Newsome said today: "We have not made a decision yet."

Asked if the Ravens' salary-cap situation would influence what the team does regarding Thomas, Newsome said: "Sure it does. But we have not made a decision."

The deadline to use the tag is February 22.

The latter's lack of involvement this season has been baffling. The 49ers have hit

Jimmy Garoppolo will probably start when the San Francisco 49ers host DeForest Buckner and the Indianapolis Colts at Levi's Stadium this weekend. For Buckner, it will be his first time stepping into the stadium since the 49ers traded him to the Colts last year. "It's definitely weird being on the other side, watching film on [them]," Buckner admits. "Obviously, they've got a bunch of new faces since I've been gone, but [also] a lot of similar faces on that side of the ball, a lot of guys that I call brothers and friends. It's weird, definitely. "I know it's going to feel weird once I get to the stadium, and get to the opponent's locker room, and little things like that. It's definitely going to be kind of weird, but I'm excited."
