Kicking in the NFL is definitely a year-to-year proposition.

That's why the franchise tag provides a straightforward solution for the Seahawks as they seek to keep Olindo Mare, after the kicker made 24 of 26 field-goal tries in 2009.

Seattle announced its use of the tag for Mare on Wednesday, a move that required them to offer him a one-year deal for $2.814 million. That figure represents the average of the top five 2009 salaries for kickers and punters.

This move essentially takes Mare off the market at a palatable price.
