Franchise tag vs. FA



Okay, I have a couple of questions that just don't add up for me. For players like Peppers, why don't teams tag and trade these players? I mean by letting them enter FA the teams get no compensation, where with a tag and trade, even if you trade Peppers for a 2nd or 3rd you get something, similar to cassel last season. Also why don't more teams trade for proven players?

What I am saying on the first part is next year Bailey is a FA, if the FO decides to let him walk, why not franchise tag him, and then find a team willing to trade? this is obviously not common with lower level players, but stars like Bailey and Peppers to me it makes sense.

On the second part why don't more teams trade a first or second for a player who is relatively young and will be an instant difference maker? Lets throw an idea out there (that will never happen) but why wouldn't the Broncos trade their number 1` pick for someone like Namdi from the Raiders to go opposite Champ? Like I said will never happen but ideas like that.

Thoughts....
