NFL Franchise tag numbers

Franchise tag numbers are going up again in 2023.   And for quarterbacks, the one-year salary will jump by $3 million – from more than $29 million to $32.4 million.

Receivers saw a smaller increase – less than $1.5 million, while tight ends’ salaries will increase by more than $1 million.  That brings them above the running back position.

Lamar Jackson, Orlando Brown and Jordan Poyer are all possible tag candidates in 2023.
