For the past couple of years, the NFL was able to exclude previous transition or franchise numbers from the calculations. With the new CBA those numbers are now included so Charles Woodson's franchise tag number (over $10 million) was now included in the calculations which bumped Nate Clements's franchise tag price. Example closer to home - Adam's 2005 salary was excluded from the calculations. With the CBA it is now included. Yet another victory for the players.
