I Support the Tenders, BUT...


Recommended Posts

Assuming the guys we have tendered don't get signed away to other teams, what happens at the end of next season?

Do they become UFA or RFA?

Just not clear with this concept enough to know what it implies.

They become UFA and we would then have to sign them to new contracts or release them, that is if there is a 2011 NFL season.

Okay then, don't mean to be dense or keep assuming. However, if there is a next season...as UFA's can they receive new tenders?

or Do UFA only receive new contracts or get released?

UFA means you are officially a Freeagent.... you hit the free agent market

new contract or get released.

Can't release them because they would have no contract to be released from - also unrestricted free agency eligebility depends on what the new CBA is negotiated as - could be 4 years - could be 6 years - don't know as the entire CBA is going to be fought over by both owners & player representatives.

When I say released on meant not on the team.

Do you have an unlimited number of tenders? There has to be some kind of restriction, or every teamwould just slap a 1st round tender on every on, so what are the restrictions (besides them being a FA).?

No limit to the number of tenders but there are rules concerning tenders:

A prior team has until June 1 to tender an UFA or a RFA a qualifying offer (worth at least 110% of the salary of the final year of the contract with the prior team). In the case of UFAs, if such an offer is made, the player has until July 22 to sign with a DIFFERENT club. If he doesn't, then the only team that the player can sign with after July 22, is the prior club. In the case of RFAs, if such a June 1 tender is made, the player can ONLY sign with the the prior club. If no June 1 tender is made for a RFA (or the tender is rescinded by the prior club before July 22), then the player becomes an UFA. In the case of both UFAs and RFAs, if the player does not sign with the Prior team by the first Tuesday following Week 10 of the regular NFL season, then the player shall be prohibited from playing in the NFL for the remainder of that season.

Deadline for old clubs to withdraw an original qualifying offer to a RFA and still retain exclusive negotiating rights by substituting tender of 110% of previous year’s salary is June 15.

I think it's safe to say that IF a new CBA is agreed it will return to 4 years. The only issue for the owners is the % of league revenue that the players get. As far as I am aware, they have never questioned the lenght of time needed to become a UFA.

If there is no CBA I assume that it stays at 6yrs
