The Transition Tag allows a team to tender a player to a one-year contract, however other teams are allowed to sign the player to a long term deal. However, the first team maintains the Right of First Refusal. As far as I can remember off the top of my head, the Transition Tag hasn't been used since 2006. That is because 2006 is the year the Seahawks used the Transition Tag on Steve Hutchinson and then he signed a poison pill laden contract with Minnesota, and the Seahawks could not use their Right of First Refusal. Until the poison pill loophole is closed, it is unlikely that a team will choose to use the transition tag.

Steelers used it last year.

Thanks for reminding me. They used it on Max Starks. No one felt like offering him enough money that he would choose to sign a contract that would be worth more long-term than the transition tag offered for one year.

Question. The player being franchised tagged will be paid more if their previous years salary at 120% is greater than the aforementioned franchise numbers (a la Julius Peppers number being $16.6 million or whatever) correct?

Two more things:
1. The franchise tag is based on the top 5 salaries at the given position (Enrage, I assume these are the non-exclusive tag amounts, correct? (*)) . The transition tag is based on the top 10 salaries at that position.

2. If a team signs a player away that was transition tagged, the original team gets nothing in return. If a franchise player is signed away, the original team gets two first round picks due in that year's draft. When combined with the poison pill that Enrage speaks about, it's a risky play.

(*) For those that don't know: the non-exclusive franchise tag is based on the top five salaries from last year, but the player can negotiate with other teams for a new contract. The exclusive franchise tag prevents the player from negotiating with any team but his original one, but the tender is based off this year's top five salaries.

Rob Bironas is a free agent this year. So I guess the answer to your question is the Tennessee Titans.

If the Eagles are going to use the tag, use it smartly.
