    Not a bad backup plan if we can't extend Wilfork.

    Those aren't the numbers that would be applied to Wilfork. They will be higher because he's not a FA until 2010.

    Still lower than franchising a corner... we franchised Asante, this is definitely a no-brainer.

    Re: Franchise and transition tag numbers

    This makes me feel pretty good about the Pats being able to franchise Wilfork for 2010 if they are unable to work out a long term extension. The franchise number for D-tackles is second lowest to only Kicker/Punters. It will surely go up next year, especially if Haynesworth gets a big deal, but no matter what the number is it will be a manageable number.

    Re: Franchise and transition tag numbers

    The Cornerback $$'s have gone nuts over the last few years - It's higher than the WR $$ No. - Crazy.

    Of course, you can thank 1. Asante and 2. Tom and Randy for demonstrating to the league the need for great CB's.

    Fixed your post for you. ;) After all, Cassel had as much success throwing against Asomugha as anyone.
