    With teams able to use a franchise and a transition tag this offseason barring a collective bargaining agreement, the following numbers will be of interest to many players around the league.

    The numbers are based on the average of the highest five or ten players at each position, depending on which tag you use.

    Linebacker: $9.680m, $8.373m

    Cornerback: $9.566 m , $8.056 m

    Wide receiver: $9.521m, $8.651m

    Running back: $8.156m, $7.151m

    Wow even kickers are getting some serious coin. $2 million for a kicker? Really?! C'mon, man!

    Yep this year kickers all around the league were well paid. Coincidentally it seems like more games were decided by missed FG's this year then any other year in recent memory.

    true dat. I can only think of 3 really good kickers (big leg strength and accurate) Nate Keading, Ryan Longwell, and Neal Rackers worth paying for.

    And Kaeding melted down in the playoffs, while Rackers missed an easy kick at the end of regulation in the first round (nearly costing the Cards a win).

    Well, Marcus Spears will not be getting a Franchise or Transition tag.

    How much will the highest tendered Restricted Free Agents getting? The one where the team receives a 1st and 3rd if they don't match.

    Uh, did you watch the 2009 football season? How many teams would give $2mil for a clutch kicker? I'm sure Dallas would, Chargers would, Redskins, Eagles, Vikings..... who else?
