ESPN blurb regarding Saints and franchise tag possibility
quote:


New Orleans Saints
Marcus Williams, safety

The Saints have severe salary-cap restraints on them this year, so it's unlikely they will use the franchise tag on anyone. But safety is the most affordable position in the league when it comes to the franchise tag ($11.4 million last year). It's not out of the question the Saints would consider using it to secure one of their most important young defensive playmakers. The free safety has been a starter ever since he was drafted in the second round in 2017 and arguably had his best season in 2020. Williams has 14 career interceptions, including the playoffs.


Prediction: The Saints won't use the franchise tag on Williams. -- Mike Triplett

Marcus Williams tag wouldn’t shock me. He’s probably the player it makes the most sense for

I think we'd have an easier time signing Marcus Williams than Trey Hendrickson. So it would make more sense to tag Hendrickson + trade him for a 2nd or 3rd, sign Williams

I'd absolutely tag him and give us time to work out a contract

Only to facilitate a trade.

re: ESPN blurb regarding Saints and franchise tag possibility
Why would u trade marcus Williams?

Then you would have a huge gapping whole at fs

No one on the roster can play free safety and cover the ground he covers.

Allen's defense relies on safety play. Especially 2 deep safeties.

That would be a bad trade. They have groomed him for years.
I can promise you they are not trading marcus williams.
