The Bengals have placed the franchise tag on defensive end Justin Smith, guaranteeing him a salary of $8,644,000 for the 2007 season. Smith, 27, has never had fewer than 5 or more than 8.5 sacks in his six year-career. Playing RDE for the Bengals, teams were eighth at running to left end and seventeenth at running to left tackle opposite him.
