NFLPA Seeking Clarity On Saints QB Drew Brees' Franchise Tag Status
The NFL Players Association asked an arbitrator Tuesday to determine whether New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has been hit with the franchise tag for a second time, according to sources. The Saints placed their exclusive rights tag on Brees earlier this offseason and Brees' first team, the San Diego Chargers, placed the tag on Brees in 2005 after his rookie contract expired. The sources said the union is seeking a decision and/or clarification regarding the league's policy that stipulates a second franchise tag is a 120 percent bump from the first tag and the third time is 144 percent.
