The NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis is officially over and the deadline for teams to decide whether to place a franchise tag on a player has passed.

Six teams ultimately decide to tag a player, keeping them from free agency for now. The tenders won't be known until the start of the league year next week, but franchises can now begin planning on who they want to try to extend long-term deals to.

Players that were tagged have until July 15 to agree to a long-term deal, play under the tag or possibly sit out the season.

Meanwhile, there is still speculation on several players and where they might call home for the 2019 season.

Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown have likely played their last games with the Pittsburgh Steelers, while free-agent quarterback Nick Foles has been linked to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
