    Yea right.

    :

    Don't they have a window to remove the franchise tag?
    Not saying they are gonna, just a question.
    His problem isn't with the tag - it's tagging him as an LB.
    I doubt there's a window, now that the new NFL year has started.

    I am aware of his problem and it is that LB's get paid less than DE's and that my friend, is all about the money.
    ;D

    by the way, not sure if it answers my question, but a quick search shows that a few teams have removed the tag shortly after franchising a guy, but only after they came to an agreement on a contract.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    That's different.
    The tag is removed once the contract is signed, since it no longer has any meaning.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Well if he wears a linebacker number, then he should be designated as a linebacker.
    Being 55 doing preclude him from being a defensive end...

    There are DE whose numbers are in the 50s
    Mick Tingelhoff wore #53 & he was a Center.
    Wouldn't that have been before there were strict regulations on what numbers could be worn by each position??
    he gets to wear a 50 number because he was drafted as a linebacker, and later made the move to DE.
    Same with Lance Johnstone.
    He was drafted as a linebacker, then moved to DE.
