Jets Plan To Franchise David Harris

According to a report on ESPN.com, the New York Jets will most likely use their franchise tag on MLB David Harris whose contract expires at the end of this season. The linebacker franchise tag number last season was $9.6M, but Harris would obviously like a long-term deal. If franchise tags are allowed -- and the NFLPA plans to battle that -- the Jets will restrict the 27-year-old Harris but will allow starters WR Santonio Holmes and WR Braylon Edwards to test the free-agent market.

Harris, who was voted by the Jets' players as the team's MVP, had 99 tackles and three sacks in the 2010 season. He has had 127 tackles in two of his four NFL seasons, including 2009 -- his first in coach Rex Ryan's defensive system.

The Jets would also like to bring back both starting wide receivers, but that scenario is highly unlikely. Who would you rather have Edwards or Holmes?
