Franchise Tag Outlook for Every NFL Team

Chicago: Running Back Matt Forte ($7.7 million)

General manager Jerry Angelo was unable to strike a deal with Forte before being fired at season’s end. New GM Phil Emery seems ready to follow the course that Angelo was set to take by franchising Forte, who might now wish he had accepted an in-season extension offer that included $13.5 million guaranteed over the next three seasons. —Alex Marvez (AP Photo/David J.
