Who should be franchised? Why, the people with the cheapest tags, naturally. And Joe Flacco.

Five Players WHO Should be Franchised. GAH.
"That" can be used with people, though may not be preferred. "Who" can't be used with things. In some cases, "that" simply reads better - which I think it does in this case.
A little googling will find sites that go both ways :
The ESPN article linked uses 'who.'
Not sure that means anything, but there it is.
Yeah, that's the more acceptable usage, and probably something editors look for. But I see and hear "players that" or similar so much that I think it's becoming more common.
It's always been common.
I read all your articles! Thanks for all the interesting information.
And thank you for your total lack of specificity in your comment!!
"Keller was always perceived as a focal point for the Jets offense, yet when he got hurt last season, few noticed his absence."
Really? I think most people following the Jets found Keller's absence quite conspicuous. And I think his career DVOA has suffered by his having played for the last four years with one of the most inaccurate passers in the league.
Now, now. Let's be fair.
Last season Keller played with two of the most inaccurate passers in the league.
Hello mу lоved one! I ωаnt to sау that thіs post is amazіng,
niсе ωrіttеn and include approхіmatеlу аll іmpοrtаnt infos.
I'd like to look more posts like this .
ωoω! Just wanted to say I truly hope this is the Omega of your posts and not the Alpha.
I never support such things because then those players become very costly to afford.
powder coating cost
So your advice would be to powder coat your free agents as an alternative to the franchise tag?

Offensive line problems highlight the needs in the NFC North ... except in Chicago, which is kind of unsettling to think about.
