Franchise Tag Deadline Passes...Players Still Available

The franchise tag came and went at 4pm ET, and those of us who are prone to following every little move of the NFL will now be able to get a more clear picture of what Free Agency will look like next week.

Come with us beyond the jump for a look at who got tags where, and talk a little bit about who is available.

Wide Receivers
-DeSean Jackson, Eagles
-Wes Welker, Patriots
-Dwayne Bowe, Chiefs
-Drew Brees, Saints
Running Backs
-Matt Forte, Bears
-Ray Rice, Ravens
Tight Ends
-Fred Davis, Redskins
Defensive Line
-Cliff Avril, Lions
-Calais Campbell, Cardinals
Offensive Line
-Anthony Spencer, Cowboys
-Brent Grimes, Falcons
-Branch, Raiders
-Goldson, 49ers
-Griffin, Titans
-Barth, Buccaneers
-Dawson, Browns
-Nugent, Bengals

Some notable players who haven't been tagged:

  • QB Matt Flynn
  • G Carl Nicks
  • WR Vincent Jackson
  • WR Marques Colston
  • WR Reggie Wayne
  • WR Mike Wallace (Steelers)

So Vincent Jackson is still available, with some reports that he was going to get a big offer from the Patriots. Knowing who is locked up, where do you want to see the Bears go?
