RFAs mean big free agency next year?

Post  Big_Pete on Thu Jul 15, 2010 6:38 pm

The current list of restricted free agents is three times the usual size. Also without a CBA and the 30% rule, most players have either been unable to sign more than 1 year deals. It also means a lot of players on rookie contracts that teams want to extend are also likely to hit the open market.

The extra players
on one year deals will have a flow on effect on free agency which will
impact the draft.

Teams will be able to fill needs through free agency. Also some teams
who think they have depth could change.

This is in addition to the normal run of players who come off contract
every year.

The 30% rule means that players who normally would be extended are
unable to get reasonable extensions

Here is a quick list I did of the notable Restricted Free Agents
currently on 1 year deals (using walterfootball). These guys will be
added to the usual number of free agents.

Also remember this year's RFA class was three times the usual size

Bruce Gradkowski (RFA), QB, Raiders. Age: 27.

I would expect a lot of roster turnover.

There will be a lot of talent available and a frankly a lot of needs for almost every team. Many teams will have a lot of money to spend.

Free Agency will be chaotic, and will have a huge impact in the draft, particularly at some positions.
