Deal unlikely between Redskins, Brian Orakpo
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

It's very unlikely the Redskins and franchise player Brian Orakpo will reach a longterm contract agreement by Tuesday's deadline at 4 p.m. ET, reports CSNWashington.com. If there's no agreement, the Pro Bowl outside linebacker will play this season under a one-year, $11.45 million deal.

Brian Orakpo still hoping for longterm deal
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo, who signed his franchise tender worth over $11 million for 2014, is still hoping to sign a longterm deal with the team. 

"I obviously still want something done. Hopefully sooner than later because I just don’t want to be in a situation where, I don’t know, this stuff lingers throughout the season and is an issue," Orakpo told the Washington Post.

"Hopefully my best interest is their best interest and we get something done. But who knows? It is a business and I have to look out for myself as well. I came into this offseason. I didn’t want any distractions. We dealt with that. Y’all guys are tired of that from last season. I know I am. I wanted to be on the positive side and be here for my teammates, which is the most important thing."

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.
