The Oakland Raiders have had a change of heart.

The Raiders were expected to slap the franchise tag on Richard Seymour. Now, that’s no longer the case. The Raiders are now expected to use it on tight end Zach Miller.

The NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora first reported that Miller will be franchised. However, LaCanfora is citing sources in his report. The San Francisco Chronicle is standing by its report that Seymour is going to be franchise tagged.

The Raiders can use its franchise and transition tag on Miller and Seymour. The Raiders would like to sign both players to long-term deals. It’s also less expensive to franchise tag a tight end than a defensive end.
