Patriots Opt Not To Use Franchise Tag This Year
The New England Patriots did not take advantage of the franchise tag in 2013.
That according to NFL.com's Albert Breer, who cited a source in reporting the team chose not to make a move ahead of Monday's 4 p.m. ET tag deadline. The NFL later released an official list with the teams who used their franchise tag, and the Patriots were not on it.
Wide receiver Wes Welker ($11.4 million), cornerback Aqib Talib ($10.8 million) and right tackle Sebastian Vollmer ($9.8 million) all were seen as possible candidates for the tag. Each player carried a big price tag that would've significantly limited New England's options in free agency.
