Giants Franchise Weatherford

The Giants have placed the franchise tag on punter Steve Weatherford, according to reports . The move, which will keep him from free agency, is for one year. They can try to negotiate a longer term deal.

Franchising a punter seems odd, but Weatherford had a tremendous year last year, and an even better Super Bowl. They could not afford to lose him. Giants weren’t going to franchise anyone else, so this made sense.
