Seems like most of us want to keep Brock pretty bad even more than our QB :eek: .

Would you use our Franchise Tag on Brock Marion ? That would pay him the equivalent of the top 5 FS's in the league.

Franchise Free Agents (FFA)
Unrestricted free agents who have been designated as the "Franchise" player. Current team has the right to match any offer. If they refuse they are given compensation by the new team the player has signed to play for.

from http://nfl.kffl.com/teams/free_agents/terminology.shtml

anybody know what the top 5 FS's make ? or is it just all S's ?

It is all safties. We shouldn't give him a franchise tag because not a lot of teams want him like they did with Taylor last year. And do we even have a franchise tag, since he signed a 6 year deal. Or does it count only for the 1 year tender he signed before the extension?

Can't slap the tag on him, because he isn't a FA. He is signed through this season, so he either has to be released, or take a salary reduction to stay with the team. We can't afford his cap number, so my bet is he will be released.

I don't think Miami can afford to use the tag this year.

oh yeah - that's sucks - hopefully a mil will be enough to keep him here when they try to re-negotiate.

when I got my 1st f/t job out of college and was making 25K, I thought I was rich. Then I moved into my own place in NY and :eek: poverty :rolleyes:

The NFL still beats baseball where lousy players make 1-2 mil a year.

We do still have our franchise tag, that why we waited till after june 15th to sign Taylor. I doubt it will be used this year since it gaurantes the player the average of the top 5 payed at that postion. We don't have any free agents that are near the top 5 of their postion.

If Marion was a UFA - which he is not - he would have been the only one worthy of the tag...

There is NO DOUBT that Marion is one of the best free safeties in the league! He is a pure BALLHAWK and playmaker! He makes this secondary the best in the league! he leaves there will definately be a DROPOFF!! He makes plays!! PAY HIM!!

both Tim Bo and Brock will re-negotiate or be cut. Based on last year, it is more likely we would cut Brock and try harder to re-neg. w/ Tim Bo.
