According to the Boston Globe the league has informed the 32 NFL clubs that they can begin using the franchise and/or transition tags in week.
Due to the fact that the current CBA has not expired the league said clubs can make use of the franchise tag beginning Feb. 10th. The rules with respect to the tags will operate in the same fashion as they did in 2010 under final year rules, which means teams can use both a franchise and transition tag if they so choose.
The deadline to apply the tag is Feb. 24th.
The Bills are not expected to make use of either tag designation on any of their free agents.
