For the capologists on the board, here is some good info regarding Franchise/Transition tags for the upcoming offseason.

Some thoughts:

- How on earth are the Cheaters going to pay Brady and then Franchise Cassel at 14.65 million. No chance he sticks around.

-We can transition Fat Starks again...for a measly 7.74 million :?

FRANCHISE AND TRANSITION TAG NUMBERS ARE OUT
Posted by Aaron Wilson on January 30, 2009, 11:46 a.m. EST
NFL franchises have an upcoming window to either use the franchise tag or the transition tag to lock up their unrestricted free agents, beginning Feb. 5 with a Feb. 19 deadline.

Keep in mind when a team uses the franchise tag or transition tag, itís a one-year tender offer of a high base salary paid during the season and includes no signing bonus. So, every dollar counts against that yearís cap.

According to a National Football Post article and Scout.com, which published the numbers first, here are the respective franchise and transition numbers for each position as the free agent signing period approaches on Feb. 27:

The quarterback franchise number is $14.65 million and the transition figure is $12.44 million.

The wide receiver franchise number is $9.88 million and the transition figure is $8.39 million.

The offensive line franchise number is $8.45 million and the transition figure is $7.74 million.

The running back franchise number is $6.62 million and the transition figure is $5.92 million.

The tight end franchise number is $4.46 million and the transition figure is $4.07 million.

The defensive end franchise number is $8.99 million and the transition figure is $7.78 million.

The defensive tackle franchise number is $6.06 million and the transition figure is $5.45 million.

The linebacker franchise number is $8.3 million and the transition figure is $7.48 million.

The safety franchise number is $6.34 million and the transition figure is $5.13 million.

The cornerback franchise number is $9.96 million and the transition figure is $8.37 million.

And the franchise number for a punter/kicker is $2.48 million and $2.26 million for a transition figure.

Hey, Iíd gladly settle for that special-teams money. Is it too late for me to learn how to kick?

Cassel will be traded.

I wouldn't be surprised to see him in Detroit.

These annual salary amounts are just a guidline for resigning or signing a free agent. I think the bigger determing factor is the signing bonus and the guaranteed money

I think Cassel will be wearing KC red next season. The Asian Prediction.

How about Minnesota? Detroit has the best chance, they have a lot of bargaining chips with all the draft picks the Cowgirls gave them for Roy Williams.
