These players have been tagged: Broncos OLB Von Miller (franchise - exclusive), Redskins QB Kirk Cousins (franchise), Rams CB Trumaine Johnson (franchise), Panthers CB Josh Norman (franchise), Chiefs SS Eric Berry (franchise), Ravens K Justin Tucker (franchise), Bills LT Cordy Glenn (franchise), Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (franchise), Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (franchise), Dolphins DE Olivier Vernon (transition).
