It sounds like the Giants are going to use the transition tag, as Jordan Raanan reports Big Blue will use the tag on DL Leonard Williams.
Barring a last-minute deal or something crazy (anything is possible these days), Leonard Williams will get tagged. The likelihood is the transition tag. That is my informed opinion on one of the Giants' top free agents. #Giants #NFL #FreeAgency https://t.co/F7072z2SJ0

The two sides have been working hard to get a long-term deal done, but so far they are still far enough apart that the Giants are going to have to go to ‘plan B’ which is to tag him.
The former Jets first round pick is in the last year of his rookie deal, a deal that has paid him $18.6 million over four seasons.
Last season in 15 games Williams put up 46 tackles with half a sack and a forced fumble.
