The team announced Monday that they have placed the franchise tag on Orakpo.
Barring an agreement on a long-term contract by the July 15 deadline, Orakpo will earn $11.455 million under the tag.
A person informed of the negotiations has told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport that the two sides had not been in active contract discussions recently. There was a fundamental disagreement on Orakpo's value.
Rapoport cited a source Monday who said Orakpo has no plans to sign the franchise tag as of right now.
Now that Haslett has his two edge rushers in place for this season, he can concentrate on adding inside linebackers and overhauling a beleaguered secondary.
