Deadline for Tagged NFL Players to Sign Long-Term Deals Passes

Fifteen NFL players were tagged in the offseason, but only two received long-term deals before the 4 p.m. ET deadline Wednesday.

Yesterday, the Kansas City Chiefs locked up Chris Jones on a four-year deal worth $85 million ($60 million guaranteed), according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Today, Derrick Henry also signed a four-year contract. His deal is worth $50 million ($25.5 million guaranteed), Schefter reports.

Not on Schefter’s list is Kenyan Drake, who was slapped with the Transition Tag. Drake signed his tender 11 days after he was tagged, but still doesn’t have a long-term deal.

A number of the players listed above did sign their franchise tender to play this year, including Denver’s Simmons and Tampa Bay’s Barrett.

However, Green and Ngakoue have not signed their tenders yet. Green is expected to play for Cincinnati (if there’s a season) on the tag. Ngakoue has been seeking a trade out of Jacksonville for a few months.

The Seattle Seahawks did not tag anyone this offseason.
