Clubs have until Friday to sign remaining RFAs to offer sheets


Restricted free agency hasn’t been without a little action this offseason. The Browns signed away wide receiver Andrew Hawkins from Cincinnati, while the Falcons’ bid for Saints safety Rafael Bush was matched by New Orleans.

However, if there are any more fireworks to come in restricted free agency, they will have occur this week. Restricted free agents have until Friday to sign offer sheets with other clubs.

Just three restricted free agents remain unsigned: Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin, Panthers offensive tackle Byron Bell and Packers linebacker Jamari Lattimore.

Baldwin and Bell were tendered at the second-round level, while Lattimore was tendered at the right-of-first-refusal level. Teams wanting to sign Baldwin or Bell away have to be ready to surrender a 2014 second-round pick to do so. In the case of Lattimore, the Packers simply have the right to match any offer, and the signing team would not have to give up any draft pick compensation.

    Wait, what about the whole thing about teams signing Jimmy Graham to an offer sheet after the draft?

    Congratulations to the Cleveland Browns on signing a tiny 5’6″ wide receiver who disappears behind defensive backs and linebackers.

    Come on Seahawks. Just lock Baldwin down. All he does I’d catch EVERYTHING & is a player with great character & is as smart as they come. The fact that he was undrafted makes him play with a chip on his shoulder. Oh yeah & btw, as an undrafted rookie he lead all Hawk wr’s in receptions. I know it’s a business but this guy is more valuable than the sum of his parts.

    Jimmy Graham is a franchised player – that’s different from being a restricted free agent. Two totally different things.

    The hawks better lock down Baldwin cause you can never count on harvin staying healthy.

    Somebody please sign Bell to an offer sheet. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And load it with poison pills so the Panthers can’t match it.

    The thought of Byron Bell protecting Cam Newton’s blind side has been keeping me awake at night, and having nightmares when I do fall asleep.

    Somebody please sign Bell to an offer sheet. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    For those of us that work 8 hrs a day, 5 days a wk, 52 wks a year: That amounts to a net pay of over $1,000 per hour. Just sign already…
