Early Monday morning, it was reported by Ian Rapoport and other NFL insiders that the tag deadline on Tuesday is expected to be postponed if the official salary cap number isn’t finalized in time.

Last year’s deadline was also postponed just one minute prior to the opening of the legal tampering period, so it certainly wouldn’t be the first time teams have had to improvise with new schedule changes.

Per ESPN’s Dan Graziano, it looks like the Union is attempting to wait until all of the new television deals are finalized before solidifying anything, which means business across the league will also be pushed off, as well.

And now for today’s links.
