2010 Franchise and Transition Tag Numbers

These figures are used to compute the one year contract offers to franchise players and transition players.

An Exclusive Franchise player is offered a minimum of the average of the top five salaries at the player's position as of April 15, or 120% of the player's previous year's salary, whichever is greater. If the player is offered a minimum of the average of the top five salaries of last season at his position, he becomes a "non-exclusive" franchise player and can negotiate with other clubs. His old club can match a new club's offer or receive two first-round draft choices if it decides not to match.

A Transition player must be offered a minimum of the average of the top 10 salaries of last season at the player's position or 120% of the player's previous year's salary, whichever is greater. A transition player designation gives the club a first-refusal right to match within seven days an offer sheet given to the player by another club after his contract expires. If the club matches, it retains the player. If it does not match, it receives no compensation.

I just thought some of you might be interested in these numbers, I know I was. I found these and other great NFL News and Notes on theredzone.org
Try it out sometime As I look at these numbers.. by far we could Franchise Jeff Reed and Transition Casey Hampton or vice versa and still have the chance to sign the Transition player whoever they decide on that might be or I mean match any other offer he may recieve..
