P Reggie Hodges

Punters and kickers are the most often franchised because the franchise tag values for them are very cheap and franchising them makes a lot more sense than giving them a long term deal. However, Hodges missed the entirety of the 2011 season with an Achilles tear and is just a 41.3 yards per punt career punter. It’ll take a career year for him to be deemed worthy of the tag.

Likelihood: Unlikely

K Phil Dawson

As I said, Punters and kickers are the most often franchised because the franchise tag values for them are very cheap and franchising them makes a lot more sense than giving them a long term deal. However, Dawson has already been franchised twice so his tag value would be 5.3 million for the 2013 season. While Dawson is one of the best kickers in the game, it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to commit that kind of money to a kicker.

Likelihood: Somewhat unlikely
