With Presidents' Day being the first time that NFL teams can decide to use their franchise tags, long-term contract negotiations between franchise candidates and franchises themselves will begin to heat up. In St. Louis, all the focus is on WR Brandon Lloyd, who may be tagged by the Rams if the two sides aren't able to reach an agreement.
But that decision seems far off in the distance, as Lloyd told Pro Football talk today that he'd be willing to return to St. Louis and that contract negotiations should begin sometime this week.
