Packers to Use the Franchise Tag on Kicker Mason Crosby?

The Packers may elect to use the franchise tag on kicker Mason Crosby, writes Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “Honestly I’m a little bit surprised (they haven’t used the tag on Crosby), just cover your tracks a little bit,” Crosby’s agent, Mike McCartney, said. “The (tender) number is not outrageous.” Crosby, 26, has handled the kicking duties for the Packers since being chosen in the sixth-round of the 2007 NFL Draft. In 64 games, Crosby is 107-of-137 (78.1% ) on field goal attempts, and has 47 career touchbacks. Crosby is a player the Packers likely won’t have to overpay to secure for the long-term.
