Vinatieri not tagged

Despite being the best clutch kicker in football, Adam was not given the franchise tag this year. Instead, (hopefully) it's expected that he and the Patriots will work out a long term deal.

Unfortunately for Bill Belichick and Scott Pioli, the insecurity of not knowing what the cap numbers will be have killed negotiations across the league. The collective bargaining agreement (CBA) is set to expire next week and the 2006 cap numbers are up in the air. So, no one is able to guess what the salaries should look like.

Meanwhile Vinatieri will be (if he makes it to free agency) one of the top free agents available. He's being listed as the third most sought after, beating out the likes of Edgerrin James.
