Packers Will Reportedly Not Play Tag

Tom Silverstien of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the Packers will not employ the Franchise or Transition tags.

From Tom Silverstien of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

Packers won't use their franchise or transition designations. Two top candidates - Cullen Jenkins, Mason Crosby - were not informed of it.

Unless they sign a contract extension in the next six days, Jenkins, Crosby and the rest of the Packers pending free agents will hit the open market - provided there is a new Collective Bargaining Agreement in place, by no means a sure thing.

TT does not do much in the offseason - other than resigning his own guys that he can't get adequate replacements for on the cheap.

Jones, while really talented and young, has had a ton of mental errors.

Cullen, while a great pass rusher and good at stopping the run, has had trouble staying on the field and is 30.

Crosby is just average at everything.

In other words, no surprises here. I hope TT resigns all three of them at Packer Friendly rates - but IMO that won't happen.....Moving along.

Ok. I asked for clarification in the last story about how the CBA (or lack there of) affects trading so now I'll do the same for the free agents.

I'm under the impression that if there is no CBA in time for a "reasonable" free agency period all free agents will be retained by their previous club for 120% of their last years contract. Is this correct?
