Great players cost a lot of money but help win games. High-priced players - a byproduct of poorly run front offices with bad scouting departments - only cost a lot of money.

Interesting, would've thought a franchise DE or DT would be more than a CB.  Should be, IMO.

Not quite right:

For Franchise Players, that wage is the average of the top 5 players at the player's position.

For the Transition Tag, the wage is the average of the top 10 players at the player's position

Actually, cheap on this list makes it easier for a team to franchise them, making them unavailable (except by trade).  The expensive ones like QBs and CBs might be harder for a team with cap problems to franchise, meaning they may have to let him hit the free market.

And becuase of that most of those CB's will more than likely hit the market, receive bigger paydays than Nate Clements ---> only making it worse the following season.
