February 17 – Franchise Tagging Begins

First day for clubs to designate Franchise or Transition Players.

Cowboys Angle: There are questions whether Dallas will franchise tag a player again this season. The previous two years, the Cowboys tagged defensive end Anthony Spencer. If Dallas were to tag Spencer once again, it would raise his yearly salary nearly 50%. With the Cowboys front office struggling to get under the salary cap this offseason, it’s unlikely Dallas would pull that trigger again. Find out who they might tag in the following pages.

    I feel about 95 percent confident that Cowboys will get that game against Seahawks. The NFL loves to give Dallas a road game to start the season. That stadium will break the world record for being the loudest again. Going to be brutal if Cowboys indeed are the lucky ones to have to deal with that game. Talking about a veteran safety, why in the heck did the Cowboys cut Will Allen last year? Yea he wasn’t anything great but would have been 100 times better then that sorry Heath dude who has no clue how to play football!
