Per Adam Schefter:
Green Bay Packers placed their franchise tag on DT Ryan Pickett. The DT franchise tag is $7 million. Pickett not going anywhere.
Of course, this does not preclude a long term deal getting done, as Packer Update pointed out on Twitter (before he deleted it - way to stand behind your opinion!) with Wilfork reportedly close to signing a long term deal with New England, those parameters could help speed along negotiations between Pickett and the team. Is Pickett worth Wilfork money? Debatable, but that deal could be a helpful guideline, if not a blueprint.
Ryan has been a good teammate and productive player for us on the field and also a good representative of the Packers in the community. We look forward to having him be a part of our future.
Emphasis mine. And I think that's a bigger part here than people may think.
