Cardinals Place Non-Exclusive Franchise Tag On Chandler Jones 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Feb 27, 2017 7:10 pm

The Arizona Cardinals have placed the "non-exclusive" franchise tag on Chandler Jones.

With the non-exclusive designation, Jones can sign an offer sheet with another team. If the Cardinals choose not to match, they would receive two first-round draft picks as compensation.

The franchise tenders for linebackers will be about $15.3 million for the 2017 season. 

The Cardinals acquired Jones from the New England Patriots last offseason.
