2014 franchise tag numbers set

The deadline to place the franchise tag on a player is approaching and now we have the figures for the franchise tag at each position. Keep in mind that three franchise tags have already been placed. The Carolina Panthers slapped defensive end Greg Hardy with the tag. The New York Jets tagged kicker Nick Folk and the New Orleans Saints will tag tight end Jimmy Graham.

The Graham situation is interesting because technically he is a tight end and would be eligible for $7.035 million, but he is expected to appeal and fight for the wide receiver label which would net him $12.312 million.

According to Albert Breer of NFL Network, the franchise tags by position are as follows:

Quarterback:  $16.912 million

Running back:  $9.54 million

Receiver:  $12.312 million

Tight end:  $7.035 million

Offensive line:  $11.654 million

Defensive end:  $13.116 million

Defensive tackle:  $9.654 million

Linebacker:  $11.455 million

Cornerback:  $11.834 million

Safety:  $8.433 million

Kicker/punter:  $3.556 million

The deadline for applying the franchise tag expires on Monday at 4:00 p.m. ET.
