    Jeff Reed gone this year?

    He's in his last year and rejected his contract offer. I bet he smells a big payday elsewhere.

    Did we keep that other kicker?

    No. We'll retain him. We'll franchise him if we have to. He is worth a kicker franchise tag #. The other potential free agents (Hampton, Colon, Parker, Clark, etc.) would be overpaid if given the franchise tag, but Reed would not be.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    Agree. Reed rejected IMO because he knew he would get tagged and that was probably worth more than the offer for one year. He is adopting the "Starks strategy" to a new contract.

    If no CBA is reached each team will have two franchise tags to use, I believe. I could see Clark potentially getting one as well; he's a nice fit and appears to want to remain a Steeler.

    Yep, two tags.....and by the way it sounds a new CBA is looking unlikely.

    One tag will be a franchise tag and one will be a transition tag (not two franchise tags).

    That's already the case isn't it? I thought I read somewhere that they were going to give each team an extra franchise tag, maybe not. The current CBA has one franchaise and one transition tag, I believe.

    Here is where I differ with some of you. I still don't see why he should be paid the big $ when there are more than capable kickers out there that can be signed.

    The $ needs to go elsewhere, i.e. Clark before $ is given to a kicker.

    Skippy has been good here, but we can get along with others as well.

    I always go to Pat Kirwan of Sirius NFL Radio/NFL.com and he always sets me straight.

    Its 1 franchise tag and 2 transition tags
