The Eagles' DeSean Jackson will make $9.515 million if he signs the franchise tag the team placed on him, according to reports.

The number for wide receiver is the fourth-highest, behind quarterbacks at $14.436 million, defensive ends at $10.605 million and cornerbacks at $10.281 million.

Jackson could not sign the tag because the number was not set, although the having the salary set is also no guarantee that he will rush to sign it, either.

The NFL also set the salary cap number at $120.6 million for the season. That is an increase of about from last year when the cap was $120.375 million. Jay Glazer, of Fox Sports, was the first to report the cap number.
