For those interested, an article at NFL.com estimates the franchise figures for various positions:

Quote

 

NFL Media's Albert Breer reported in December that teams were given a projected 2016 cap of between $147 to $153 million. As Breer notes, the cap range given to teams for budgeting purposes tends to be on the low end. Therefore, if we use $153 million as our starting point (an increase of just under $9 million from last season) we can estimate the franchise tag cost for each position (transition tag in parenthesis).

Quarterback: $19.6 million ($17.5 million)
Defensive end: $15.4 million ($12.5 million)
Wide Receiver: $14.4 million ($12.0 million)
Linebacker: $14.0 million ($11.7 million)
Cornerback: $13.7 million ($11.7 million)
Offensive line: $13.5 million ($11.7 million)
Defensive tackle: $13.4 million ($10.7 million)
Running back: $11.5 million ($9.5 million)
Safety: $10.6 million ($9.0 million)
Tight End: $9.0 million ($7.6 million)
Kicker/Punter: $4.5 million ($4.0 million)

If the salary cap rises even more than $153 million, these one-year figures would also increase accordingly.

Thanks for this, Jeremy.  A couple of questions.

1) What's a "transition player"?

 

Transition player gets the average of the top 10 players at his position (franchise player gets avg of top 5). If another team makes an offer, we can match it; it we don't, they can walk and we get nothing in return. (Non-exclusive franchise, we get two first-round picks from the other team).

Due to our Super Bowl run, the Panthers are reporting a week later than other teams.  Some teams (with new head coaches) report tomorrow, April 4.
