Swartz: Will Seahawks Use Franchise Tag?

Last year Hauschka earned a base salary of $715,000, and looking at recent contracts from other kickers has a chance to bump that up to $3.5 million next year. Dan Bailey of the Dallas Cowboys signed a $22.5 million contract, with a little over $3.2 million annually. Oakland is paying Sabastian Janikowski $3.775 million a year, with 8 million of his multi-year contract guaranteed.
