Report: Falcons Still Not Expected To Use Franchise Tag

USA TODAY Sports

Despite the savings, the Falcons don't plan to use the franchise tag on anyone.

The Atlanta Falcons could use the franchise tag on William Moore or Brent Grimes. It appears they will not use it on anyone.

La Canfora is probably right here. The Falcons freed up cap space in order to re-sign their guys, take a swing at a couple of key free agents and draft well. They didn't do it to pay a lot for one year to lock up any of their players, even if it's a key contributor like William Moore.

It's worth remembering that this is probably the case, particularly as we barrel toward free agency. William Moore is going to get a legitimate chance to test free agency, and the Falcons better be ready if they're not using the tag.
