Under the present system a team can franchise tag a player. That player can get offers from other teams. The original team can match and keep the player or let him go for 2 #1 draft picks. IMO , this is backwards. I think it should work this way. A team can franchise a player. The player cannot go out and seek offers from other teams. If another team is interested in the player they have to go to the original team with a compensation package. If the original team accepts the compensation package, then the other team can negotiate with the player. Under the present system, other team can poison the water between the player and his original team. Then they wait for things to get to the point of no return between the player and the original team. Then come in and make a "trade" offer below what they would have made if they had to deal with the original team first. This is what it think happened with Samuel. But, it has happened many times to other players and teams in the past. Before this is called anti player. Don't forget that the player gets the average oof the top 5 salaries for that position. So, the player does get a good compensation package anyway. Thoughts?
