Wide receiver Antonio Bryant received $9.88 million in 2009 after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers placed the franchise tag on him.
He had a career year in 2008, which resulted in 83 passes for 1,248 yards and seven touchdowns.
Tampa Bay won't be placing the franchise tag on Bryant again this season, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, because the price is way too high for a soon-to-be 29-year-old wideout who spent the better portion of the 2009 season battling a knee injury.
The Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, Carolina Panthers, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots could be interested in Bryant.
