There’s nothing quite like a good social media campaign that ends with a hashtag, especially when it’s a brand that has been around for so long.
And there’s no better example of the franchise tag than the one that the Los Angeles Rams had for quarterback Sam Bradford.
In just over a month, the hashtag was used more than 2,000 times and it still hasn’t been replaced.
Bradford’s contract will count against the salary cap in 2019, so the Rams have every incentive to keep him around and take advantage of the tag’s reach.
To keep Bradford on the field and the team’s wallet, it’s important that he plays like he did during his rookie season.
It’s also important that his teammates respect him as a player, a leader, and a guy who gets it done.
In other words, it should be fun to watch Bradford play, especially if you’re one of those Rams fans who has been on the bandwagon for years.
Below are five ways to get Bradford on Twitter.
#Franchises tag #RamsNFL pic.twitter.com/k9fV7g0kQD — NFL (@NFL) August 1, 2019 The tag itself is a bit of a mystery.
It was first used by the Kansas City Chiefs, who tagged receiver Deonte Thompson, running back Jamaal Charles, and tight end Austin Hooper to add depth and stability to their offensive line.
The tag wasn’t really introduced until 2015 when the New York Giants used it on running back Ezekiel Elliott, who was released in February.
But the tag hasn’t gone away since the tag was used on Bradford, who played a huge role in their Super Bowl win over the Patriots.
This tag has become a favorite among Rams fans.
And it’s not the only one, as the Los Angles franchise tag also counts against the team salary cap.
The Rams are currently the second-highest-paid team in the NFL with $103.5 million in salary cap space.
To make sure that Bradford isn’t sitting on the couch watching the games from his house, his agent, Tom Condon, and his wife, Jennifer, put together a #Fell-for-Bradford hashtag.
That means that Bradford will get the hashtag and tweets along with it.
