The 2017 NFL Franchise Tag Deadline is on Wednesday, meaning teams are running out of time to finalize deals that will keep their prized possession on the roster for another season.
Not every team uses the franchise tag, but teams heading toward tricky free agency situations typically use the franchise tag to prolong the process.
When a team places a franchise tag on a player, the two sides will have until July 15 to agree to a long-term deal. If no long-term deal is agreed to, the player will take part in the season on a one-year deal.
With the franchise tag deadline taking place at 4:00 p.m. E.T on Wednesday, March 1, here is a quick look at which teams have used the franchise tag and which players they used it on.

Arizona Cardinals: DE Chandler Jones, $14 million
Carolina Panthers: DT Kawaan Short, $13.6 million
New York Giants: DE Jason Pierre-Paul, $17 million
Pittsburgh Steelers: RB Le'Veon Bell, $12 million
San Diego Chargers: OLB Melvin Ingram, $14 million
Washington Redskins: QB Kirk Cousins, $24 million (Exclusive franchise tag, meaning Cousins cannot negotiate elsewhere)
The Kansas City Chiefs signed safety Eric Berry to a six-year, $78 million deal meaning his future in Kansas City is secure. On the flip side, the Chicago Bears did not use the franchise tag on Alshon Jeffrey, meaning the star wide receiver could walk in free agency.
