According to Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger, the New York Jets won’t place the franchise tag on nose tackle Sione Pouha.  He’s arguably their most crucial free agent, and now they’ll be forced to let him walk.

The Jets don’t have enough cap room to sign Pouha and he’ll likely be able to get a multi year deal somewhere else.
