The deadline for placing franchise tags on players has passed, and the Patriots have not tagged WR Randy Moss.
That could mean that the sides have agreed to a multi-year contract. Yet a multi-year contract can not be announced until the 2008 league year begins Feb. 29, because players can not extend/restructure more than once in a league year. Moss had restructured his deal in April to consummate his trade to New England.
The Patriots did not place the franchise tag on any player.
