How the franchise-tagged contract work in the NFL," a player must be offered a one-year contract for an amount no less than the average of the top five salaries at that player's position as of a date in April of the current year in which the tag will apply, or 120 percent of the player's pervious year's salary whichever is greater. The current problem with the current tagged players like Denver Broncos OLB Von Miller, is guaranteed money. The Broncos previously offered Miller a six $114 million dollar contract but only two year's are fully guaranteed. Talks have stalled with all players and their respective teams.
