Cost Of 2010 Restricted Free Agents

Courtesy of PFT, we've got the numbers on the 2010 Restricted Free Agents:

With no new collective bargaining agreement, players will need six years of service -- not four -- to qualify for unrestricted free agency. The following numbers are the cost of the player for each coinciding tender.

For example, if the Chiefs put a first round tender on Derrick Johnson, his base salary would be $2.621 million if the Chiefs kept him. However, another team could come in and offer him a contract and if the Chiefs accept, the team would give up a first round pick to secure the rights to him.

The "original pick compensation" means the compensation to sign that player would be wherever he was originally drafted.

Four years of experience

  • Original pick compensation: $1.176 million
  • Second round tender: $1.759 million
  • First round tender: $2.521 million
  • First and third tender: $3.168 million

Five years of NFL experience

  • Original pick compensation: $1.226 million
  • Second round tender: $1.809 million
  • First round tender: $2.621 million
  • First and third round tender: $3.268 million
