I read an article last year, I think it was by Kirwan or Brandt that talked about the small number of RFAs that changed teams each year. I haven't been able to find it, likely related to my long term and short term memory loss.... The bottom line is that it is very rare for RFAs to change teams, if you have your eye on any of them don't get too excited. We will see if the new CBA impacts this trend at all" Articles on the subject http://espn.go.com/nfl/columns/pasquarelli_len/1518788.html "Over the past three seasons, for instance, an average of just three restricted players have changed teams. Last spring kicker Kris Brown, who went from the Pittsburgh Steelers to the Houston Texans, was the lone restricted player to find a new address." Scary thing about the list, the Patriots could have had A. Thomas for a 6th round pick and a whole lot less money... http://espn.go.com/nfl/trainingcamp03/columns/pasquarelli_len/1587769.html "How rare is that? Consider this: Only 10 restricted free agents leaguewide had changed teams in the previous three springs."
