2022 NFL franchise tag tracker: Who received tag ahead of March 8 deadline?

NFL teams had until 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday to apply the franchise or transition tag to one player on their roster headed for free agency.

Browns tight end David Njoku was the first player to receive a franchise tag this offseason, but many more players are in consideration for the designation. Teams and franchise players have until mid-July to work out a multi-year contract extension. If an extension isn't reached by that point, the player and team can only agree to a one-year deal for the current season.

Here is all of the tags used by teams -- and notable ones not used -- ahead of Tuesday's deadline:
