There is just one day remaining for teams to decide whether to use the franchise tag this year and the NFLPA has released their official franchise tag numbers. Each team not only must decide whether to use a tag, but which of them they want to use.
There are three kinds:
1. Exclusive-rights franchise tags
Keeps the player under contract for the upcoming season without other teams being able to make an offer.
2. Nonexclusive Franchise Tag
Allows the player to sign an offer sheet with another team. Should the original team opt not to match that offer, they would receive two first round draft picks in return.

3. Transition tag
Allows the player to sign an offer sheet with another team with the original team having the opportunity to match it. Should they opt not to match it (or be unable to match it) the player would be signed away with the original team receiving no compensation.
Here are the figures for the transition tag:
