No franchise tag on Jerry Hughes
The Buffalo Bills did not use the franchise or transition tag by Monday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline.
This has to leave Bills fans wondering what will happen with Jerry Hughes. Hughes is the highest priority off the Bills’ 10 free agents. Hughes will now be free to negotiate with other teams beginning Saturday, and can finalize a new deal elsewhere as soon as next Tuesday.
The Bills have said they are working on a long-term deal with Hughes.
