NFL 2013 Salary Cap - Franchise/ Transitional Tags
NFL Veteran Free Agency and Trading Period –
Free Agency - March 12th thru July
Trading Period - March 12th thru mid October
The salary cap figures list Franchise non-exclusive and transition tags. Non-exclusive players must be tendered a one-year deal no less than the listed amount for their position, which is determined by the average of the top five salaries at their position. With the non-exclusive tag, the current team has the right to match any offer or get two 1st round choices in return. An exclusive Franchise tag ties him to his current team at a higher but undetermined price for one season. Both sides can continue to negotiate on a longer deal even after a franchise tag has been applied.
