The time has come.

At 4pm today all NFL teams have to submit franchise or transition tags for players they'd like to keep (at a salary that is pre-determined).

So far, a few players have bit the dust. We'll continue to update this post as more join the list:

Von Miller - Denver Broncos - Franchise Tag

It's said that they're working towards a longterm deal. Odds are, Miller will end up with a monster contract. This is just a bandaid to secure his rights.

Alshon Jeffery - Chicago Bears - Franchise Tag

The Bears never planned to let Alshon walk. Despite being injured for a lot of 2015, the Bears know he's a talented player that Smokin Jay needs.

Justin Tucker - Ravens - Franchise Tag

The Ravens really like him. They aren't willing to let him walk away.

I like kickers too, so good for you Baltimore.

Muhammad Wilkerson - New York Jets - Franchise Tag

He was too good for the Jets for them to let him walk away. They have a ton of free agents and felt that he was the most important piece. I think they'll get a deal done at some point, just not sure when that'll be.

Cordy Glenn - Buffalo Bills - Franchise Tag

We expect there to be more tags by the time the day is done. As of 12:49pm EST, this is what we've officially heard.

I’m a simple man with simple pleasures. As someone who’s always approached life with the attitude that things could be worse, I’ve had an awesome time so far. I've been a fantasy addict for nearly a decade, and I've loved every second of it.

For the record, I never actually played football. I have no doubt that I would get crushed running across the middle for a pass, every single time.
