    Now that the deadline for the Cincinnati Bengals to sign A.J. Green to an extension has come and gone, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk thinks there’s a chance the team will cut ties with its wide receiver entirely. The NFL insider wrote on Thursday that he thinks team owner Mike Brown might see a way to save some cash by pulling back Green’s franchise tag offer. Because the receiver hasn’t signed the offer, it’s within the rules for the Bengals to do so. The league’s rules allow for a player to operate in a season under a franchise tag without signing it.

    Beginning Feb. 27 and ending March 16 was a period in which NFL teams could place franchise or transition tags on players who were set to become free agents in 2020. The meaning of the franchise tag (and the transition tag) is just that: It’s a mechanism teams are allowed to use to keep “franchise” designated players off the unrestricted or restricted free-agency markets. Because the franchise tag is a tool used by teams to lock players into one-year deals, players generally don’t like being tagged. The positive for the players who are tagged is that the one-year deals are guaranteed, and the salaries represent the average of the top five highest-paid players at their positions (if not more). The player’s guaranteed salary for that one season...
