One of the top offensive lineman isn't expected to hit the market. The Panthers are expected to franchise tag Taylor Moton according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. 

There's still a chance the two sides reach a long-term deal, but the organization plans to place the franchise tag on the star right tackle ahead of the March 9 deadline. 

Moton was one of the best potential free agent offensive linemen in this class. The 26-year-old played 1,032 offensive snaps for the Panthers last season. 

He would've been a perfect fit in Cincinnati, but the Bengals won't get a chance to sign him. 

There will still be plenty of high-end offensive linemen on the free agent market, including Trent Williams, Daryl Williams, Joe Thuney and Brandon Sherff.
