By Jared Smola 8:02am EST 2/28/18


Teams have until March 6 at 4 pm ET to use their franchise tags. Barring a long-term contract agreement, the tagees will play 2018 on a 1-year deal that pays them the average salary of the top 5 cap hits at his position.

Here's a running list of who's been tagged and how much they're projected to earn in 2018:


Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry ($15.98 million)

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah ($17.14 million)

Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence ($17.14 million)

Rams S Lamarcus Joyner ($11.29 million)

Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell ($14.5 million)
