Make it five years in a row since the San Diego Chargers implemented the Franchise Tag on a player.  Many Chargers fans were hoping that a miracle would happen and the team would some how be able to keep Eric Weddle, but according to General Manager Tom Telesco the Chargers will not use their franchise tag.

The tag essentially is a one-year deal that, in most situations, is ideal for neither the team nor player. Not applying the tag is the latest indicator for anyone who needed another  that safety Eric Weddle will start a new chapter next month after nine seasons in San Diego.

It would cost the Chargers $12.12 million to tag Weddle in 2016.
