    The NFLPA recently released the projected franchise tag values for the 2013 season, barring any increase in the overall salary cap.
    Quarterback $14.6 million
    Running Back $8.07 million
    Wide Receiver $10.35 million
    Tight End $5.96 million
    Offensive Lineman $9.66 million
    Defensive Tackle $8.30 million
    Defensive End $10.98 million
    Linebacker $9.45 million
    Cornerback $10.66 million
    Safety $6.79 million
    Kicker/Punter $2.92 million

    Looking at Houston's Free Agents I am thinking the only FA that may get the Tag this year would be S Glover Quin, but I doubt it I am thinking the Texans do not use the Franchise Tag this year.

    No way Quin gets the franchise tag. Not close to being a top 10, much less a top 5, safety.

    Did you see the QB franchise tag number ($14.6 million)? That's only slightly higher than Matt Schaub's 2013 cap hit ($14.5 million). So the Texans are paying for a franchise type QB. Unreal.

    I doubt Glover is looking for $7M/yr..... I doubt (& I could be wrong) that there's a team out there dying to give Glover $7M/yr. He's probably looking for Danieal Manning money, $5M/yr I'd think the Texans would be willing to pay him as much....... Olsen just needs to make it make sense to both sides.

    $99.74 million for 10 starters, so we have ~$23.26 million to spread around our other 14 starters ($1.66 million per) to field a team.....with no scrubs. :truck:

    Theoretically, each team only gets one franchise player.
