    Does anyone know the last time a Quarterback was franchised and who it was?

    I don't remember anything and really didn't pay attention to franchising and all that crap until i started looking around this site.

    I think Hasselbeck got the franchise a couple years ago, could be wrong though.

    Manning was exclusive tagged in 2004 when they couldn't get a deal done and he played through his entire rookie deal. His cap number at the end of that deal must have been vicious (on a salary backloaded rookie deal) because his tag price was $18M indicating it was the product of the 120% calculation rather than the going tag rate. But they got a deal done about a week after FA commenced.

    And I think Brees played under the tag his last season in SD (2005), but as recall the QB tag that year was only around $8M. They were trying to decide whether to stick with him and trade Rivers or trade the untested #3 draft pick they got in the Eli Manning swap. Lots of folks pointed to Brees going down last season as reason why you don't want to play under a tag. They thought his career might be over and SD owed him nothing.

    I thought the transitional tag was basically the right to match any offer from another team?

    Is the $ amount if they get no offers and cannot come to terms with the team it's a one year deal for that amount?

    Miguel -
    How close were these to the numbers that you posted for the TE and CB Positions? Pretty close if I remember correctly.

    Does anyone know if they've done anything to prevent the poison pills this year in transition-tagged player's contracts that we saw last year? (E.g. Burleson having his salary guaranteed if he played like 5 games in the state of Minnesota.) Otherwise the transition tag is rendered meaningless.

    While I would love to see Samuel re-signed, I just see no way possible that we can let Graham go if his cap hit will only be 4 mill to franchise him, he means too much to this offense.

    I don't think anything has been done, so get ready for a lot of poison pill deals - wouldn't be shocked if Denver did one for Daniel Graham should they try to bring him in as the blocking TE to pair with Sheffler.

    Transistion -- $3,612,000

    For CBs I guesstimated
    $7,580,000 Franchise number
    $6,431,000 Transistion number

    Actual numbers
    Franchise -- $7,790,000
    Transition -- $6,766,000

    For LBs I guesstimated
    $7,335,000 Franchise number
    $6,614,000 Transistion number

    Actual numbers
    Franchise -- $7,206,000
    Transition-- $6,493,000

    My numbers were not that far off.
