New England Patriots (12-4)


Patriots place franchise tag on K Gostkowski

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The New England Patriots placed the franchise tag on three-time Pro Bowl kicker Stephen Gostkowski on Monday.

The team said in an unattributed statement that the move gives the sides more time to negotiate an agreement. If no deal is reached by July 15, the Patriots will pay Gostkowski $4.126 million in 2015.

Gostkowski led the NFL in total points for the fourth time in 2014. He is the leading scorer in franchise history.
