Ravens running back Ray Rice will probably be the last of the 21 franchise-tagged players to get a long-term deal.

Per multiple reports (the first tweet I saw was from Sports Illustrated’s Peter King), Rice agreed to a multi-year contract minutes before the 4 p.m. deadline.

Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times then chimed in with the fact Rice received a five-year, $40 million deal, with $25 million in the first two years.

Unless something happens in the next two minutes, that means 12 of the 21 tagged players reached long-term deals.
