Its Bruce begging Kirk to come in and sign it. Gotta abate this bad press somehow, I'm sure the Pryor signing will be linked soon.

And Kirk saying "I'll play on the tag but out of here after this year"

Doesn't he absolutely have to? Like, we can't trade him if Kirk doesn't sign the tag, right?

We can rescind the tag late and leave him an UFA late in the process like the Panthers did with Norman.

But he can't get traded unless its someplace he wants to go.

If we did that... oh my lord. Yeah. You wouldn't see me on this forum. It'd either be because I got banned or killed myself. Okay not really, but that'd be beyond stupid.

People keep saying will transitional him next year, is that even possible? I don't think it is as its just a variation of the franchise tag, no?

We can transition him. Its a last gasp. It will cost us around $28M for the tag instead of the 34.5m for the franchise.

What it means is that it allows us to match any offers he gets. So he's still not free from Washington even next year if Washington transitions tags him and then matches the 49ers offer.

But it means Washington gets exactly nothing in compensation if Kirk signs elsewhere. Still, its better than not tagging at all if you're the Redskins.

The 49ers aren't the only ones interested and I thought that was another tag that allowed him to choose his team the one to match an offer .

I don't see how Allen with a straight face keeps Kirk if we are gonna get offers for Kirk one year or not teams can get him guaranteed and give him a contract va next year what if race for him.

If he signs the tag we are screwed. This is basically him telling us he will not sign an extension and trade me. Now.

Why can we not sign him to the tag, THEN sign him to an extension?

They can't franchise again, can only use twice. Which is why I'm curious as to why they'd be able to transition him instead.
