Calais Campbell is the latest player to get the franchise tag.

The Cardinals announced today that Campbell, a defensive end who has played all four of his NFL seasons in Arizona, has been franchised.

We’ve made no secret of the high regard in which we hold Calais,” Cardinals General Manager Rod Graves said. “To be clear, reaching a long-term deal that will keep Calais with the Cardinals for years to come remains our primary objective. This move today allows us the opportunity to continue working with Calais and his agent toward that goal and that’s exactly what we will do.”

The franchise tender for defensive ends is expected to be about $10.6 million.
