    Salaries & Franchise Tags

    In the NFL, the top-paid players by position set the rates for franchise and transition players. The earnings for each player represent salary and prorated signing bonus for 2006.

    If a team uses its franchise designation, the player receives a one-year offer at the average of the top five players at his position or a 20 percent pay increase, whichever is larger. His free agency is then restricted in that a team signing him must give up two No. 1 draft picks as compensation.

    Transition players are tendered at the average of the top 10. The club retains a right of first refusal but does not get the draft picks if it doesn't match an offer.

    Kinda shocking to see that Walter Jones isn't listed in the lineman list.

    Here is something kinda funny re: the Seahawks. We are going to put the franchise tag on our kicker this season. Josh Brown is great and he singlefootedly saved a few games for the Hawks this season. But it does strike me as odd the out "franchise" player is a kicker.

    Re: TE prices, I am really curious to see what Jerramy Stevens fetchs on the free market this offseason.

    After all that BS that Hines put us through with holding out, you'd think he'd be on that list
