With franchise tag deadline looming, major names coming off the market quickly

The deadline for teams to use their franchise tag on pending free agents is today at 4pm. Stories are flooding in about major free agents being tagged and therefore taken off the market.

Take these games off your wishlist:

Antonio Bryant, WR - Tampa Bay

Terrell Suggs, LB - Baltimore Ravens

Darren Sproles, RB - San Diego Chargers

Karlos Dansby, LB - Arizona Cardinals

Oshimogho Atogwe, S - St Louis Rams

There's also reports that the Titans will use the franchise tag on TE Bo Scaife and not Albert Haynesworth.

The Eagles will reportedly not be using their franchise tag on any impending free agents.

All eyes will now turn toward Carolina to see which of their two premier free agents, Jordan Gross & Julius Peppers, gets the tag.
