    A transition player is a franchise player with two major differences:
    (1) The required tender is lower (average of top ten players, not top five).
    (2) No draft compensation if the player leaves (i.e., all it gives a team is right of first refusal).

    Given the brouhaha over Steve Hutchinson and poison pills, it's basically useless.
