Chiefs Franchise Tag Options Between Dwayne Bowe, Brandon Carr

Today - Monday, February 20 - marks the first day NFL teams can apply the franchise tag to a player (it runs from now until March 5), with the two obvious and much-discussed options for the Kansas City Chiefs being wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and corner Brandon Carr.

The debate as to which player will get the tag has raged for weeks. SB Nation NFL writer and Arrowhead Pride blogger Joel Thorman gives Carr the edge, and then Bowe... ultimately, Dwayne Bowe:

Chiefs: Brandon Carr. Or Dwayne Bowe. The Chiefs have two players worthy of the franchise tag but there's no indication which way they'll go. Either one could be tagged and it wouldn't be a surprise. The Chiefs had Stanford Routt in for a visit, which could mean Carr is unlikely to get the tag. Bowe is probably less of a sure-thing when talking about a longterm deal, so my prediction would be Bowe getting the franchise tag.
