Open Thread: Franchise Tags Start Today

The Bengals may not use their franchise tag, in fact, I would say that they probably won't, but there are a lot of teams who will need to use them. The teams that do use their franchise tags could affect the Bengals' plan in free agency. If guys like Carl Nicks or Ben Grubbs get tagged, the Bengals will have to look elsewhere for a guard -- probably the draft.

There are cornerbacks and running backs that could become available in free agency that the Bengals would probably like to get in stripes, but if they're tagged it's not going to happen.

So, who do you think will definitely get the franchise tag in the next couple days and how do you think it will affect the Bengals' offseason plans?
