The Tennessee Titans have been busy the last few days. It is expected that at some point before the 4pm deadline, the Titans will use their franchise tag on TE Bo Scaife. Though he will not be able to test the free-agent market, as he had hoped.
Scaife will become the first tight end to be tagged this offseason and will be assured of making the tight end franchise number of $4.46 million — Once he officially is tagged, Scaife will be bound to the Titans, and Tennessee will have addressed another one of its biggest needs heading into the start of next Friday’s free-agent signing period. The Titans will have ensured that they retain Scaife, a 2005 sixth-round pick, who last season led the Titans in receptions with 58.
