Would play on franchise tag Godwin recently indicated he would be willing to play the 2021 season under the franchise tag if necessary, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
Impact According to Laine, the franchise tag appears to be "where things are headed" for Godwin this offseason, as the move would afford the Buccaneers some more salary-cap flexibility in the short term. Godwin's franchise tender would be worth around $16.5 million for 2021, and accepting the tag wouldn't rule out of the possibility of the wideout eventually reaching a longer-term deal with Tampa Bay. Further clarity on Godwin's 2021 contract situation will be gleaned in coming days, as the deadline for teams to apply the franchise tag for the upcoming season is next Tuesday.
