"He's a great candidate for this year and next year to be franchised if they can't come to an agreement," said one industry source with knowledge of the Ravens' salary cap situation. "A long-term deal for him, he's going to be paid as a top two or three kicker, which means he's going to be close to $20 million, which is the Gostkowski money. Do you want to give him $20 million or do you want to just give him the one-year franchise tag and see how it goes? It's the obvious move, and history has shown it. There is no other viable candidate and he's the most valuable commodity."
