The franchise tag period is always an adventure with the and 2018 might be no different, as the Panthers are reportedly considering the tag on kicker and not guard , according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.This is odd because, when you look at the Panthers, you don't think "man, they really need a kicker to protect and establish the run game with physical blocking on the interior acro s Rasheem Green Jersey from ." In fact, that sentence is usually reserved for "All-Pro guard Andrew Norwell." It just sounds better that way.But, per Rapoport, the Panthers are flinching at paying the price for Norwell, who will get the generic offensive line tag dollar amount instead of a guard-specific dollar amount. On G Andrew Norwell: Very clear hes one of the top FAs regardle s of position. Carolina wants to keep him. But the tag number of $14M+ is more for a tackle than a guard. Creates a difficult situation for a team, great one for a great player. Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) This is not false: when you look , you're talking about $10 to $12 million per year. Paying Norwell more than $14 million would put him pretty far north of the average value for the position. However, you could also point out that guards are much closer to kickers in actual value than they have been for years. We might see go as the first offensive lineman off the board in the 2018 NFL Draft, which shows how important guards are, and Zach Martin is about to blow the roof off the sucker when he negotiates a new deal with the after his rookie contract Phil Haynes Jersey . He's gonna get something in the range of $14 million.So if the Panthers want to keep Norwell, why would they not tag him now? That doesn't require they pay him $14 million per year over the life of Jarran Reed Jersey his contract. It just means they owe him $14 million guaranteed for a single year and he will be starting a base level of $30.8 million guaranteed ($14 million + 120 percent next year on a tag of $16.8 million) when negotiating a new deal for the Panthers.That's as an unrestricted free agent last year, so we're not even talking about a ton of inflation. It's just the going rate for a guard in free agency. Norwell is 26 years old, just made the All-Pro team, would be locked up for his prime and would help to protect the franchise quarterback while also providing a mauler in the run game.Instead the Panthers want to tag kicker Graham Gano, who is 30 years old and also, you know, a kicker. Gano's coming off an incredible season, hitting on 96.7 percent of his field goals, which led the league. But he also made le s than 80 percent of his field goals the year before. Kicking is a fluid situation and even the best kickers can be wildly inconsistent. In fact, the Panthers had two good kickers once upon a time, before they let the steal away rookie .Gano will be an unrestricted free agent -- the Panthers tagging him would cost them something in the range of $5 million on a one-year, fully guaranteed Ugo Amadi Jersey deal. It's not a horrible hit and they could probably negotiate something new with him to keep him locked up if they want. But couldn't they do that anyway? And what's more likely, that the Panthers can let Gano walk and sign him back, or that the Panthers can let Norwell walk and sign him back (or sign him before the league year begins)? Clearly the former. Which is why it makes no sense to let one of the top offensive players on the entire roster, a roster that is Super Bowl worthy but one that needs all the offensive help it can get, walk at the expense of using a one-year loophole on a kicker.On the other hand, it would fit right in with the Panthers usage in the past. They tagged a punter, Todd Sauerbraun, and then signed him Bobby Wagner Jersey to a long-term deal. They tagged current defensive end , who they drafted, only to see him actually leave for free agency later. They , who would play a single game for them before going on the commi sioner's exempt list because of domestic violence i sues. They, letting Norman leave in free agency.Tagging a kicker instead of an All-Pro offensive lineman .
