Free Agency Details

In addition to the upcoming draft this is also the season of free agents, a time when terms like "franchise tag" and "transition plyer" get bandied about. But what does that really mean? Well, one group of amateur capologists are helping to keep all of us informed.

Members of the Yahoo! group AmCapNFL have provided the dollar amounts that go with each position. For example, a cornerback who is franchise tagged will receive a one-year contract worth $7,790,000. Conversely, a transition cornerback is guaranteed to receive at least $6,766,000.
