The franchise tag deadline is officially here, and the New Orleans Saints have opted not to tag any players this year. It was previously reported by ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, that the Saints would not use the franchise tag on safety Marcus Williams again. They are hoping to get a long-term deal in place instead. Should he hit the market, Williams will be one of top free agents available. Williams currently has 320 Total Tackles, 38 PBU’s and 15 INT’s since being drafted by the Saints in 2017.
