The NFL released the list of 26 restricted free agents who received qualifying offers from their team and who are subject to the first refusal/draft choice compensation system of the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Other teams have until April 23 to sign a restricted free agent to an offer sheet. The prior team has a chance to match and potentially to receive draft compensation depending on the tender offer.

Only one of the 26 restricted free agents received a first-round tender. The Rams curiously gave a first-round tender to cornerback Darious Williams.

  1. Another example of Les and his team identifying an extremely talented undrafted player, that noone else seemingly wanted, who in hindsight should have been drafted in the 1st or 2nd round.
