    Can you really Franchise a player two years in a row? Wasn't Briggs (and Samuel?) franchised last year?

      Briggs and Samuel reached incentives this year where they cannot be franchised again next year. I’m pretty sure they reached them. It was an agreement they made with their teams before the season. Generally, I believe you can be franchised more than once

        Yes you can be franchised in consecutive seasons by the same team. Only way to avoid it is to add a "No Franchise" stipulation once they do it for the first time. As for Samuel, i know he had a clasue, but i was not sure if he hit his incentives, as for Briggs, i don't know.

          Samuel's clause was relataed to team victories. obviously, New England reached that number so he can't be Franchised again.

            You can be franchised more than once but not two years in a row. Unless a deal is made I suppose.

                so do you think the chiefs will franchise jared allen? i know he's a stud, but do you think they think he's worth that kind of money? i heard he doesn't really want to go back there anyway; he wants to play for a winner. might that play into it?

                  If he wants to play for a winner and the Chiefs have a great draft then they might not need to Franchise him. However they wont let a player of his caliber walk for nothing.

                      He and the team probobly struck a deal after his first franchise that would allow them to do it twice in a row based on product or wins. Something like that because the Cardinals wanted to Franchise someone for 2 strait years a couple years back and the league stopped it saying they couldn't.

                        I don’t think a player would a cut deal to allow himself to be franchised. I don’t know how their players union allows it at all. Could you imagine the baseball owners even asking the MLB union for that? It would be a joke.

                        I think Orlando Pace was franchised at least 3 straight times.

                          Not all the details, but I do somewhat remember that.

                            I think that both Samuel and Briggs reched their incentives.
