Kirkendall Posted February 19, 2004 Report Share Posted February 19, 2004 WASHINGTON (Feb. 18, 2004) -- Four-time Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey, already given permission to seek a trade, was designated a franchise player by the Washington Redskins. The Redskins had until Feb. 24 to make the move, but it became inevitable after contract talks reached a stalemate last week. The franchise tag keeps Bailey from becoming a free agent when his contract expires next month. It also means the Redskins have to make him a one-year, $6.8 million tender -- the average of the top five players at his position. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
