    Default Questions?


    0 Not allowed!
    So I'll be the first to admit, I know nothing of player contracts or anything.

    What does RFA?

    Same with UFA?


    also while I am at it, I was on NFL.com and saw these guys were declared FA's. Does that mean the Chiefs don't want to resign or they are negotiating?

    Jon McGraw declared free agent.
    Rocky Boiman declared free agent.
    Pat Thomas declared free agent.
    Jason Babin declared free agent.
    Oliver Celestin declared free agent.
    Adrian Jones declared free agent.

    I asked this question a few weeks ago and I was directed to wikipedia. So I am going to do the same:
    Free agent - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    This is my understanding, someone please correct me if I am wrong.

    Basically a RFA (restricted free agent) is someone who the team he was on the past season has the right to make a counter offer before they leave to another team. Also, they can put "tenders" on the players that means if someone else signs them they owe certain draft picks. We "tendered" Webb, Niswanger, and Page. If someone wants to pay them more than we offered, they have to give us draft picks too.

    UFA is an unrestricted free agent, which means anyone can sign them and there is no compensation.

    I dont know what "declared" free agents means. But these guys contracts expired and we havent re-signed them (yet). They are available to anyone to sign.

    Hope that helps.

    Me too.. he could be useful in the 3-4. He had 38 sacks in college and was a 1st round pick, so I think there is still some breakout potential there.

    I'm also in favor of hanging on to Jason Babin. Heck, 2 of the team's pathetic 10 total sacks were Babin's, and he only played in 7 games last year. And between he and Hali, they had half the anemic sack total.

    Give the guy 16 games and see what he can do.

    that wiki page is good. anyone that needs help to understand about (un)-restricted free agents, I recommend looking at that link.
