Poll: Dwayne Bowe or Branden Albert for the Chiefs franchise tag?

Peter Aiken

Now that the franchise tag period is open it's time to put this up to an official poll. (As opposed to, um, an unofficial poll.) You have the franchise tag and you have to pick one player whose contract is expiring on March 12, the first day of free agency. Is it going to be Branden Albert or Dwayne Bowe?

Outside of Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens I might venture to say the Kansas City Chiefs have the most interesting franchise tag situation going on. Of course, I'm just a little biased, but Branden Albert vs. Dwayne Bowe is a franchise tag question that involves two very good starts, two guys that are important to the Chiefs future success.


Poll: Would you pay Albert like a top 5 tackle?


So now that the tag period is open, we'll lay this out to a poll.

You're KC Chiefs GM John Dorsey. You haven't worked out a long term deal with Branden Albert or Dwayne Bowe and you have to make a decision by March 4, the final day to use the franchise tag. It would cost roughly $9.6 million to tag Albert and $11.4 million for Bowe, who was franchised last year.
