Rams won’t be tagging Brandon Lloyd

Ten players have already received franchise tags around the NFL, and as many as 25 are expected by Monday’s deadline for tags to be assigned.

Rams free agent receiver Brandon Lloyd won’t be getting one.

Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch confirmed Saturday that the Rams “haven’t used their [tag]” on Lloyd and “aren’t expected to do so” ahead of March 5.

While Rams COO Kevin Demoff recently told TurfShowTimes.com that the club had “initial discussions” with Lloyd’s representatives at the NFL Scouting Combine, there has been no sign of an impending contract agreement and Lloyd seems much more likely to enter free agency.

As a top four or five available receiver, Lloyd won’t struggle to generate immediate interest on the open market.

    1 tag per team, 10 already tagged. How can there be 25 more? There are only 32 teams last I checked!

    Rams don’t have enough money, they have to fund new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams’ bounty fund. It’s about priorities.

    He’s saying that they are expecting 15 more teams to franchise players which would give a total of 25. Not 25 more teams have to franchise players.
