PHOENIX—The NFLPA released the official 2008 franchise and transition tender amounts at its annual meeting Thursday afternoon.
The numbers are based on the top five and top 10 players at each position using salary-cap numbers from 2007. It’s no surprise that quarterbacks will again be highest with a franchise number of $10.73 million and a transition figure of $9.5 million.
The highest cap number for a safety in 2007? The Bears’ Adam Archuleta at $5.095 million. Tenth on the list was Mike Brown at $3,106,666. Archuleta’s base salary for 2008 is $730,000 as the bulk of his money has already come.
