    fair enough

    but how much is that? lol

    the two places i look to for frnachise costs don't even mention the punters.

    and was he the first punter ever franchised?

        I would assume they just don't want him to become a FA and just want some time to negotiate a long term deal with him, but I'm not sure. What would "top 5" punter money even be?

            I looked at the salaries and If they are correct he should get 2,420,000

              Giants'
              Steve Weatherford joins Michael Koenen (2009) and Todd Sauerbrun (2003)
              as the only three punters ever to receive franchise tag.

                Ralph Vacchiano ? @TheBlueScreen
                I believe the "franchise" number for a punter is approximately $2.6 million. Two sides had been talking about a longer deal, though. #NYG

                Mike Garafolo ? @MikeGarafolo
                Tag for Weatherford comes with an estimated $2.5 million salary for this season if he signs it. #nyg

                      1. That makes @Weatherford5 only the third Giant ever franchised, joining Brandon Jacobs (2009) and Jumbo Elliott (1993).

                      2. dunno

                        Giants used it on Jacobs.

                        The Falcons franchised a punter a few years ago. It actually makes sense if you don't need the tag for anyone else since Punters are so cheap. Also you can safely use the non-exclusive tag which is cheaper since no team would ever give up a 1st rounder for a punter.
