Packers Franchise Pickett, Collins Reportedly Set to Holdout
The Green Bay Packers announced today that they have slapped the franchise tag on nose tackle Ryan Pickett, which will give the 30-year old run stuffer a one-year contract worth just over $7 million. The franchise tag is calculated by averaging the top five salaries of the highest paid players at each position, which for a nose tackle came out to $7.003 million.
Pickett becomes the third nose tackle to have the tag placed on him, joining the Patriots’ Vince Wilfork and the 49ers’ Aubryao Franklin. Steelers’ nose tackle Casey Hampton is also expected to have the franchise tag placed on him by Thursday.
