Tag, you're it!

Jeff Backus was given the franchise tag by Detroit.

Seattle used the transition tag on Steve Hutchinson instead of the franchise tag. What's it mean; by transitioning him, he's allowed to negotiate with any other team; the Seahawks have the right to match any offer; and the one-year tender isn't guaranteed.

The Vikings also used the transition tag on CB Brian Williams.

The Packers still haven't decided whether to tag Ryan Longwell yet, but most sources don't think they will.

Earlier this week the Jets tagged DE John Abraham and the Bills tagged CB Nate Clements.

The Ravens will not tag RB Jamal Lewis who is set to become a free agent, same story for the 49ers and LB Julian Peterson and the Colts and RB Edgerrin James.

The deadline is this afternoon so we should know shortly about all tagging that will be done.
