Mike Harmon: “The franchise tag is the best and worst thing of all time. For every other position besides the running back it’s worked out pretty well but this is what their union negotiated whether they like it or not. At some point you have to realize you own the cycle of what you’ve created and I see that with Saquon Barkley.”
