Those trigger 5th year options, highest for top 10 picks at future tag-based prices. Will someday get those replaced with word "option" but for now just FYI if you see that and are new to the league. You won't be paying 99 million for the player in their 5th year, but will have an option for keeping them for extra year at to-be-determined then franchise tag-based values.

I remember this sent me into a panic my first year. I thought I'd be paying over half my cap to Melvin Ingram.

Goodell wrote:I'll shift things into 53-man roster mode about 2 weeks prior to the regular season. At that point we'll have a big push for all teams starting to get down to their final 53 man rosters. The deadline for that is the start of the NFL season on September 7th.

Also make sure that you update your depth chart for the new season. Lots of teams will have players who are no longer on their squad in there from last year. I'll manually do a check of all teams before the season and the league will update replacing invalid players with highest rated option, but you want to make those decisions yourself so make sure to update your depth chart! Thanks.
