Chandler Jones Franchise Tagged by Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals officially placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on outside linebacker Chandler Jones on Monday, his 27th birthday.

Jones has 25 1-2 sacks over the past two seasons, third-most in the National Football League over that span.

After trading for him in the 2016 offseason, it looks like the Arizona Cardinals will retain the services of linebacker Chandler Jones for at least one more year. Cardinals GM Steve Keim said he's had "great dialogue" with Jones but the sides are running out of time to reach a long-term deal before Wednesday's franchise-tag deadline.

Oil prices rise after report shows drop in USA stocks
U.S. government data showed crude inventories rose less than expected last week as imports dropped the most since November. The MT Theo T departs Corpus Christi, Texas with the first US' crude oil export in 40 years on December 31, 2015.

The move by the Cardinals is hardly a surprise, as coach Bruce Arians and team president Michael Bidwill said the Cards meant to retain Jones for another season.

All in all, this is not an unexpected move, hopefully the Cardinals are able to extend Jones past the franchise tag before the July 15th deadline.

Johnson technically could still hit the market and sign with another club, but that team would have to give two first-round picks to Arizona to complete the deal. In his first season with the Cardinals, Jones proved his value, recording 11 sacks, 15 tackles for a loss, 3 passes defensed, 4 forced fumbles, and 2 fumble recoveries. If they cannot come to a contract agreement before then, he will play the 2017 season under the franchise tag, which could be upwards of $17 million a season.

The status of the remaining protest camps is uncertain. "I don't know if they had second thoughts, or we scared them", Herr said. As many as 100 demonstrators were in the camp, according to activists, but authorities estimated 50.

The Cardinals sent their 2016 second-round draft pick and offensive lineman Jonathan Cooper to the Patriots in exchange for Jones in March.

The 27-year-old Jones is one of a number of key Cardinals players who are out of contract.
