I was a little surprised by Foster getting the transition tag and Hutchinson as well. I figured the latter would have been franchised but so much the better for teams looking for an elite OG.

2006 franchise and transition players
DE John Abraham --Franchise--8.332 million
OT Jeff Backus--Franchise--6.983 million
CB Nate Clements--Franchise--5.893 million
RB DeShaun Foster--Transition--5.153 million
OG Steve Hutchinson--Transition--6.391 million
CB Brian Williams--Transition--4.774 million

What would a team have to give up to get a transition player?

Pretty much what every they think they can get him for $$$ wise. However, the home team has the right to match it and if they do, the player stays with the home team.

I don't think so.

Franchise players have guaranteed contracts but there are normally limited negotiations. Teams have until March 17 to get a long-term deal without the team losing the franchise tag, but normally, few deals get done. By transitioning him, he's allowed to negotiate with any other team; the Seahawks have the right to match any offer; and the one-year tender isn't guaranteed.
