Buccaneers' William Gholston: Won't be slapped with franchise tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gholston (elbow), an unrestricted free agent the Bucs wish to retain, nevertheless isn't a candidate for the franchise or transition tags, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The soon-to-be fifth-year pro was one of the Bucs' most effective run stoppers in 2016, tallying 49 tackles (37 solo) and equaling a career high with three sacks over 14 games. However, the team and Gholston will have to come to terms on a multi-year dear for him to remain in Tampa, as the 2017 franchise tag for defensive ends is expected to be about $17 million, while the rarely-used transition tag is likely to run approximately $14 million. Although the team regards Gholston as one of its most dependable components along the front seven, those costs would be prohibitive relative to his overall impact and upside. The Bucs may allow Gholston to test the open market before entering into negotiations for his return in earnest, and could seek out a more dynamic pass-rushing presence as his potential replacement in the interim.
