The Arizona Cardinals have placed a non-exclusive franchise tag on outside linebacker Chandler Jones after failing to reach a long-term deal with the player.
The “non-exclusive” tag allows the Cardinals to continue negotiating with Jones through July 15.
If another team makes him an offer, Arizona can either match it or receive two first-round draft picks.
Under the franchise tag, Jones would receive about $15m for the coming season.
Acquired in a trade with New England a year ago, Jones had 11 sacks, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and 15 tackles for loss last season. Jones has 25.5 sacks over the past two seasons, third-most in the NFL over that span.
