Leonard Williams to Receive Tag From Giants

The New York Giants are expected to place the franchise tag on defensive tackle Leonard Williams today. This is according to a tweet from Adam Schefter:

This will mean roughly a 15.2 million dollar deal for the 25-year-old defensive tackle for the Giants. This is a puzzling move from New York. The Giants just acquired Leonard Williams through trade at last season’s deadline. The sixth overall pick from 2015 had a severe down season, only notching 26 tackles and half a sack through eight games. The Giants are rebuilding their defense, but this move makes no sense. Williams was not a fit in the Giants scheme whatsoever. He is not a piece the New York Giants should be considering part of their future, especially at this price.
