The NFL franchise tag is an easy way for teams to retain some of their best players without committing to them long term. If there is a concern about a player’s age or health, it’s an important tool for teams to use to keep some of their most talented players.

The deadline for team’s to designate a player with the franchise tag is 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday. The Detroit Lions aren’t expected to use the tag this year, but that doesn’t mean this deadline isn’t important for Detroit. Other teams have already used the tag, meaning that certain potential free agent targets aren’t likely to hit the market (unless they hold out and the team removes the tag).

So we’re going to be tracking all of the taggings done this year, and will also mention some notable players that have not received the designation. We’ll be live updating this post as news comes in, so stick around all day until the 4 p.m. ET deadline on Tuesday.

UPDATE: The deadline has passed and no last-minute tags were made. Only the six teams above used the designation.
