Bye Bye Berrian
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why you use the franchise tag. In one quick move, Berrian is now a Viking, with $16 million guaranteed. What do we get? Nothing.
Had we gone with the non-exclusive tag, we could have signed Berrian for much less than he just made, and traded him to the Raiders for their first round pick. Or even to the Vikings.
Basically, we just got robbed.
They had better be talking to Briggs right now...
