No Franchise Tag Coming for WR Bryant

The St.Pete Times reports today about the franchise tag, and says the club won’t use it on WR Antonio Bryant:

Teams can begin applying the franchise tag to players beginning today, but wide receiver Antonio Bryant will be losing that designation from the Buccaneers. Bryant, 28, earned $9.88-million last season as the Bucs’ franchise player but he struggled to recover from knee surgery and had only 39 receptions for 600 yards and four touchdowns last season. The Bucs could still re-sign Bryant as a free agent or consider trading for a veteran receiver like the Broncos’ Brandon Marshall, who likely could be acquired for a second-round pick.
