    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 Draft Selection at player's Original Draft Round but a second-round pick if the player was a first-round pick: - a salary of $850,000.

    Based on his performance in the AFCCG when we really needed him, I think we should pay him to leave NE.

    I'd be surprised if the Pats tendered him. If he hit the street in November he can't be that hot a commodity that the Pats can't get him back for the minimum.

    We've got a bunch of day two picks coming up and safeties usually go deep into the draft. We can do better than renting Rashad Baker for a year at $850,000, can't we?

    Amendment: We picked him off waivers. That still means 20 teams passed on him at the 3rd year minimum.

    No Jersey Selected

    I'm tired of safeties who are no bigger than many CBs. I want Ss with some meat on their bones and spit in their eye. There are street FAs with better pedigree and accomplishment than Baker. He can join Mruc on the UB40 line.
