Giants can withdraw the franchise tag but it really makes no sense since they already have that 14 mill allocated specifically for him and unless they just wanna be cheap bastards they might as well keep it there. There aren't any other free agents left that they could sign to use that cap space. JPP probably didn't allow the team to meet with him per his agent as this is business regardless of how other people feel.
The franchise tag sucks and players don't like it. So they are going to use whatever little leverage they may have. JPP maybe hopes the Giants withdraw the tag, making him an unrestricted free agent free to sign anywhere. Kinda like when ***** *** Jay Ratliff was allegedly injured to the point where he couldn't run; Cowboys release him; in two days he signs with the Bears
