    A Restricted Free Agent (RFA) is any player that has completed three accrued seasons and their contract has expired. A RFA must be tendered with an offer on or before the Restricted Free Agent Signing
    Period begins. The RFA can be tendered one of four offers. They are:
    (1) Right of First Refusal and Draft Selection at player's Original Draft Round but a second-round pick if the player was a first-round pick: This is a one year player contract at a salary of $850,000 (for 2007) or 110% of the players prior year's salary (whichever is greater). If another club signs said RFA, the team tendering the offer receives one draft pick equal to the round the RFA was selected in during the draft but in the case the player was a first round pick the pick will be a second round pick.
    (2) Right of First Refusal and a second-round pick: This is a one year player contract at a salary of $1,300,000 (for 2007) or 110% of the players prior year's salary (whichever is greater). If another club signs said RFA, the team tendering the offer receives one second round draft pick.
    (3) Right of First Refusal and One First Round Draft Selection: This is a one year player contract at a salary of $1,850,000 (for 2007) or 110% of the players prior year's salary (whichever is greater). If another
    club signs said RFA, the team tendering the offer receives one first round draft pick.
    (4) Right of First Refusal and One First Round Draft Selection, and One Third Round Draft Selection: This is a one year player contract at a salary of $2,350,000 (for 2007) or 110% of the players prior year's salary (whichever is greater). If another club signs said RFA, the team tendering the offer receives one first round draft pick and one third round draft selection. If no tender offer is made by the start of the Restricted Free Agent Signing Period, then the player becomes an Unrestricted Free Agent.

    I'm going with Right of First Refusal and a 2nd-round pick - a salary of $1,300,000.

    I'd like to hear from the folks who say no tender. They gave him active roster money to stay on the practice squad, and he got elevated to the starting lineup rather rapidly. Then he got injured. Maybe he's Stephen Neal part two?

    No Jersey Selected

    I thought he played quite well vs. the Vikings, but I just don't see him as a $1.3M player; I voted for $850K.

    Billy Yates' greatest trick was convincing the NFL he didn't exist.
