The Jacksonville Jaguars used the franchise tag on tight end Evan Engram on Monday after his first season with the team.
The 2023 salary for tight ends on the franchise tag is $11,345,000.
Engram, 28, signed a one-year deal worth $9 million with the Jaguars in March 2022 after playing five seasons for the New York Giants.
Engram had a renaissance season for Jacksonville, hauling in career highs in catches (73) and yards (766) in 17 games (14 starts). He caught four touchdown passes.
Engram has 335 catches for 3,594 yards and 20 TDs in 82 career games (65 starts) after the Giants selected him No. 23 overall in the 2017 draft.
Other players locked up ahead of Tuesday's franchise-tag deadline included Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs, Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard and Washington Commanders defensive tackle Daron Payne.
The Baltimore Ravens plan to apply the tag to star quarterback Lamar Jackson if the sides do not reach an agreement on a long-term contract by Tuesday.
