Franchise Tag Projections

Well since everyone is getting into the act today I figured I would post the numbers from my records as to what I think the tag will be based on a $121.1 million dollar salary cap. None of these are official and just to give an idea of what teams may be spending to keep their star players:

QB- $14.508

RB-$7.774

WR-$9.700

TE-$5.560

OL- $9.286

DE- $10.844

DT-$8.023

LB- $9.057

CB- $10.737

S- $6.483

P/K- $2.745

Teams can start to tag players today but it is doubtful that too many players will be immediately  franchised, especially those whose long term contracts would likely come in under the values of the tags.
