As a child, I cherished the game of tag. As an adult, not so much.
Darren Sproles, Julius Peppers and Terrell Suggs. Add three more names to the list of high-profile free agents the Chiefs won’t be signing. All three were franchise tagged by their current teams earlier today.
Oh yeah, Anquan Boldin is now also saying that he’s open to a long-term deal with the Cardinals. So much for bringing in ‘Quan. Jordan Gross also re-signed with the Panthers. Add Karlos Dansby, and that’s six players who could have been targets for the Chiefs this offseason that are no longer going to be available.
The only silver lining here is that since the Ravens have used their franchise tag designation, we can now go after linebacker Bart Scott with reckless abandon. He’s pretty much a must-sign free agent target for the Chiefs at this point. That’s my opinion, at least.
Addicts, what’s your take on Tag Thursday?
