At the podium, Schneider was asked if Lynch was a candidate to be tagged if a contract agreement could not be reached. “Sure,” he said. Schneider said the club has had “great discussions” with the team’s leading rusher and his agent since mid-December. Both sides prefer a multiyear deal, but if agreement on a contract cannot be reached by the March 5 deadline to designate franchise players, Schneider said the club will tag Lynch.
