    Cant we franchise Isaac

    I dont know all the details and I dont pretend to but what can we do.

    Is the FO unwilling to tag him? or can we?

    GC or Nick whats the deal.

    We can't and shouldn't franchise Bruce. It'd be cheaper just to pay him what we owed him this year instead of what he'd get paid if we tagged him.

    At the moment, Ike is no longer a St. Louis Ram. The team can still negotiate with him as a free agent, as can any other NFL team. That just sounds so strange to say.

    Because the Rams chose to cut Bruce, then they don't have the ability to franchise tag him. Even if he hadn't been cut, he was under contract, so he couldn't have been tagged then either. That's used for players who finished the final year of their contract and are set to go to free agency. A team can't cut a guy and then tag him, because once he's cut, he's a free agent and the tag wouldn't apply. They forfeited their rights to him when they decided to release him.

    I really hope Bruce doesn't have any really hard feelings toward the Rams for cutting him.

    Everything I've seen of Bruce through the media makes it seem like he knows business is business. I doubt he'd hold a grudge.
