Ryan Pickett: Green Bay Adds Franchise Tag

According to Adam Schefter’s Twitter account, the Green Bay Packers have franchised DT Ryan Pickett. The move will cost them $7 million for this season.

“Green Bay Packers placed their franchise tag on DT Ryan Pickett. The DT franchise tag is $7 million. Pickett not going anywhere,” he tweets.

They must really like Pickett in there for their new 3-4 alignment. It’s a system that you just can’t run if you don’t have the big boy in the middle at nose tackle. The new system, however, seems to have alienated former productive players like Aaron Kampman and A.J. Hawk.

Although, it may just be that Hawk stinks.
