With the salary cap for 2014 now set at $133 million the cost of the franchise tag for safety has also increased.

When it was anticipated that the cap would increase to $126M to re-tag Byrd would’ve cost 120% of his previous year’s salary or $8.3M since it was the greater amount, but now it appears that the new salary cap figure will push the franchise figure for safeties to $8.43M.

Here are the rest of the franchise tag amounts by position courtesy of CBSSports Jason LaCanfora.
