For the most part there were many key players who were franchise tagged giving the team another year to work out a contract, but there also some very important players who weren’t franchise tagged and could be left to test free agency or in works with a new contract.

Mario Williams (OLB, Houston Texans), Matt Flynn (QB, Green Bay Packers), Vincent Jackson (WR, San Diego Chargers), Carl Nicks (G, New Orleans Saints),Brandon Lloyd (WR, St. Louis Rams), Cortland Finnegan (CB, Tennessee Titans), Marques Colston(WR, New Orleans Saints).

From what is being said around the league both Vincent Jackson and Marques Colston are going to test their luck in free agency to take their talents elsewhere to another team.
