Every year the NFL releases a list of the restricted and unrestricted free agents in the league and every year there's a surprise or two in there.
This year, one of those surprises came from the Kansas City Chiefs as it was revealed that WR Kevin Curtis, who was signed shortly before the playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens, was actually restricted in where he could go.
By restricted, I mean the Chiefs had the right of first refusal on him.
The normal restricted free agent is one that hasn't played four years in the league, thus isn't fully vested and not eligible for unrestricted free agency. Curtis' situation was a little different as he was eligible for unrestricted free agency but apparently had that right of first refusal clause put into his contract.
Frankly, I had forgotten all about him so this shouldn't change anything with the Chiefs.
