Brian Orakpo signs his franchise tender
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Linebacker Brian Orakpo signed his franchise tender with the Redskins on Thursday, the team announced. He is guaranteed to make over $11 million in 2014 and be a free agent again in 2015. 

Orakpo had 10 sacks and his first career interception and touchdown last season.

All franchise tags of the non-exclusive variety
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The four players who got franchised -- the Saints' Jimmy Graham, the Panthers' Greg Hardy, the Jets' Nick Folk and the Redskins' Brian Orakpo -- all received non-exclusive tags. That means they can sign offer sheets with any team.

However, the signing teams would have to give up two first-round draft picks if the tagging team decided not to match. It's highly unlikely any team would give up that much, even for superstars like Graham or Hardy.

Six players get tagged for 2014
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Eight players received the franchise tag in 2013. This year, four players got franchised and two drew the transition tag, which had not been used since 2011.

Getting the franchise tag were Saints tight end Jimmy Graham, Jets kicker Nick Folk, Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy and Redskins outside linebacker Brian Orakpo. Browns center Alex Mack and Steelers outside linebacker Jason Worilds were designated as transition players. 

The deadline for tagging players passed at 4 p.m. ET.

Brian Orakpo still hopeful about long-term deal
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Although the Redskins slapped the 2014 franchise tag on him, outside linebacker Brian Orakpo said he remains hopeful the sides can work out a long-term deal by the July 15 deadline, reports the Washington Post. Orakpo said he was encouraged the team used the tag to keep him.

However, NFL Network reports Orakpo has no plans to sign his franchise tender now. As long as he doesn't sign it, Orakpo will not have to report for OTAs.
