The NFL franchise tag period opened today, with teams able to place the one-year tag on players between now and March 5. A team may place a franchise tag on one player per year, giving them a fully guaranteed one-year deal worth the average of the top five players' salaries from their position.
Joel Thorman, from SB Nation, has put together a list of players who may or may not have the franchise tag placed upon them.For the Miami Dolphins, Thorman writes:
"Paul Soliai. They franchised him last year, but I doubt that happens again. His agent has said there aren't any indications that the franchise tag or a deal is coming from the Dolphins' front office. I've seen crazier things but expect Soliai to hit the open market."
