Indianapolis Colts will not use their franchise tag

Today it was noted that the Indianapolis Colts will not use the franchise tag this year. Teams have until 4 p.m. Monday to use the tag.

Cornerback Vontae Davis was the top candidate for the Colts to use the tag on, but it would have been an expensive one if they had decided to go that route. The franchise tag for a cornerback is $11.8 million.

Davis has potential to be one of the top cornerbacks in the league, but he needs to be consistent. He played well enough at times to look like he was on his way to earning a huge payday last season. But he countered the strong play by having some stretches where he wasn’t focused and he struggled.
