Free agency is coming on March 14, but before that begins, NFL teams have another option to keep valued players from leaving.

I know that Louisville’s announcement that it will vacate 123 wins in basketball from 2011 to 2015 — including the 2013 national title — doesn’t alter the physics of what Michigan’s Trey Burke did to Louisville’s Peyton Siva at the rim on April 9, 2013, nor does it retroactively change the minds of the referees who blew the whistle on Burke for what appeared to be an all-ball block. But: The block was good, and I somehow feel more certain Cheap Kids Football Jerseys of that today than ever before.

According to FanRag’s Jon Heyman, they’re targeting Arrieta for the time being, with the team and Arrieta’s camp “having dialogue” with each other. To translate that from 18th century teatime language: both sides are talkin’.

The reason a deal isn’t close, or even realistic based on current details, is that the Phillies are sticking to their guns when it comes to a short-term deal. Which is smart. Arrieta is good but probably not good enough to compromise what could be a very positive future by committing to a long-term deal. So if the Phillies know they would only go for a short-term deal and Scott Boras knows that he only wants something lengthier for Arrieta, why are they even talking?

Some people, like NFL Network draft analyst Daniel , think Ogbuehi is still Cheap Kyrie Irving Jerseys the mix for some tackle-needy teams at the end of the first round That includes the Chiefs, he said.And while it’s becoming more common to high-level athletes continue to compete at comparatively advanced ages, one doesn’t always witness so glaring examples across multiple sports the span of just a few days.Schmaltz moves to center.

Starting on Feb. 20 until the March 6 deadline, teams can use the franchise tag.

The catch is that just one player can be tagged and if a long-term deal isn’t reached by July, the franchised player will receive a one-year contract with a salary that’s an average of the top five highest-paid players at that position.

Essentially it’s expensive and really only worth it if a player is among the league’s elite.

Last year, just seven players received the tag: Chandler Jones, Kawann Short, Melvin Ingram, Trumaine Johnson, Jason Pierre-Paul, Le’Veon Bell, and Kirk Cousins. So far this year, we’re at one. The Dolphins announced Tuesday that they have tagged Jarvis Landry to keep their top wideout from hitting free agency.
