Report: NFL May Move Franchise Tag Deadline Back


The NFL franchise tag deadline is Tuesday March 9th. Not so fast, per Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, that deadline may be pushed back.

As Rapoport reported, the NFL has to release its 2021 salary cap numbers before a franchise tag deadline can be enforced.

This wouldn’t be unprecedented as last year the franchise tag deadline was moved back a total of four days. This was a result of the NFLPA pushing back it’s deadline to vote on the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

This is a developing story, stay tuned to for further details.
