NFL.com's Ian Rapoport was told Tuesday the Atlanta Falcons don't expect to franchise any player.

Safety William Moore seemed to be a nice fit for the tag, so consider it a minor surprise the Falcons might pass. Remember, the safety position is among the most economical when it comes to the franchise tag. Rapoport said signing Moore remains a priority for the team.

Atlanta used its tag last season on cornerback Brent Grimes, who was headed for a big free-agent pay day before blowing out his Achilles tendon last September.
