Joe Thuney to play under the franchise tag

LG Joe Thuney is expected play under the franchise tag for the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

Thuney is set to make $14.78 million and will be a free agent next season. He is considered one of the best interior lineman in the NFL and is looking to secure a long-term deal. The Patriots and Thuney were reportedly not close to an extension when contract talks began during the off-season. The former former 2016 third-round pick is a vital piece of the Patriots’ offensive line.

Joe Thuney and the Patriots ‘not close’ on a long-term deal

Mike Reiss of ESPN reports that G Joe Thuney and the Patriots are “not close on a deal.”

Fantasy Impact

Thuney got the franchise tag from New England, which will pay him $14.78M in 2020. That’s a large cap hit for a team that needs to free up some space, and the Patriots could do that by agreeing to a long-term deal with the All-Pro guard. But according to Reiss, the two sides aren’t close, which could lead to a trade this week ahead of the Draft. A trade could also be completed immediately, as Thuney has already signed his franchise tender.

Joe Thuney receiving the franchise tag from Patriots

The New England Patriots are placing the franchise tag on offensive guard Joe Thueny, according to a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Impact

This move is a surprising one, but this allows the Patriots to attempt to receive draft pick compensation from a team in exchange for Thuney while also preventing him from signing with a division rival like the New York Jets, who had been rumored to have interest.
