In the case of Mario Williams, the Texans do not want to use their franchise tag on him because he would get 125% of his salary from the last year of his contract. Why does he get 125%?

Because the average of the top 5 highest paid at his position is lower than what he made last year he gets 120% of previous years salary

Ask me anything about the NFL, player contracts, and NFL current events
