LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Monday’s deadline for NFL teams to use their franchise designation came and went without the Washington Redskins making a move.

After placing the franchise tag on tight end Fred Davis in 2012, the Redskins opted not to do so a second time.

Only eight teams used franchise tags, with the Dallas Cowboys being the lone NFC East to do so. The team tagged linebacker Anthony Spencer Monday afternoon at a cost of $9.619 million.

Tagging Davis, who is receiving from a torn left Achilles’ tendon, would have cost the Redskins $6.45 million against an already tight 2013 salary cap.

Washington now has 14 players who are due to become free agents at 4 p.m. March 12.
