As the numbers which will begin to fly come into focus, teams now know what their restricted free agents are going to cost them.

Via Field Yates of ESPN, the tender amounts for RFA offers have been set.

The first-round tender will be $3.91 million, the second-round tender will be $2.746 million and the low or original round tender will be $1.797 million.

Teams can negotiate with RFAs, but if the original team doesn’t match their offer sheets, they receive compensation based on the level of tender the RFA gets. Any RFAs not tendered by their team before the start of the league year Thursday will become unrestricted free agents.

There are five restricted free agents among our PFT Free Agent Hot 100, which is a handy place to track this week’s action.

On that list are Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso, Falcons wide receiver Taylor Gabriel, Rams defensive tackle Dominique Easley, Ravens running back Terrance West and Packers outside linebacker Jayrone Elliott.

  1. I thought the ‘skin tender two RFA as exclussive rightts guy, so they can’t get an offer elsewhere. What is the tender amount for those???

  2. From PFT on 2/28: “The Redskins have tendered a pair of exclusive rights free agents on their offensive line.

    The team announced on Tuesday that tackles Ty Nsekhe and Vinston Painter have both been tendered, which means they’ll be back in Washington as exclusive rights free agents exclusively have the right to play for their original team once the tender has been issued.

    Nsekhe has bounced around the NFL since 2012 and had his first taste of pro football in the Arena League in 2009, but only played in two regular season games before joining the Redskins in 2015. That explains why he’s still an ERFA and unable to solicit other offers after showing well in four starts at left tackle during Trent Williams‘ suspension last season.

    Painter played 10 offensive snaps in five appearances last season and also saw action in three games with the Browns in 2014.”

    So what $$$ do the ‘skins need to pay these guys???
