With the deadline to place franchise tags on impending free agents quickly approaching, multiple NFL teams have done just that recently.
This now includes the Washington Redskins predictably tagging three-time Pro Bowl guard Brandon Scherff.
It is of the non-exclusive variety, meaning that another team could give Washington two first-round picks if it were to sign Scherff. That’s not happening.
Scherff, 28, was the No. 5 overall pick of the Redskins back in 2015. While he was initially drafted to play tackle, the former Iowa standout has excelled as a guard. That includes three trips to the Pro Bowl.
The veteran will earn $16.1 million next season should he sign the tender.
