Complete list of restricted free agents according to NFLPA

A few years ago the New England Patriots identified a restricted free agent they truly liked -- thanks to a recommendation from a friend of Bill Belichick named Nick Saban -- and they went after the player.

No, they didn't end up signing Wes Welker as a restricted free agent. But they did work out a trade for him with the Miami Dolphins.

That was 2007. Restricted free agency has seen precious few players changing teams since then despite the success Welker has had with New England. The fact is as draft picks have become more valuable (based on the fact rookies now make less) fewer teams are willing to give draft pick compensation for players that will also come with new contracts.

Nonetheless, the NFL Players Association collects the list of players that do not have four years in the league but are out of contract as restricted free agents.

Here is that list:

I wasn't suggesting Amendola, just throwing it out here for debate.

I actually had him in fantasy and he stayed on the bench most of the time. Not that that means anything but he was only good for a td about every 3 weeks.

I think Hartline got more yards more consistently than him.

Make sure you have a designated driver nj.

As a medical professional of some repute in the Bahamas, I respectfully suggest that firing Ireland would go a long way towards curing numerous ailments.

I want no more acorns. Bring in te Men$.

Wasn't OJ Brigance originally draft by the Dolphins?

San Francisco stuff Ciapino, and Porchetta. Enjoy the game!

It's 'cioppino.'

Oj briggance was a free agent signing he was with us for a few years I think we signed him out of Canada

I'm rooting for the Des Moines Ham Warriors in today's big game.

I like the wart hogs by 6

Omar Kelly is quoting Jesus , is he serious or what

Thanks Nj. I knew the name was familiar. They just did a piece on him on CBS. Apparently he was a big contributor for the Ravens their SB year. Now he has ALS. Bummer.

I believe that Alicia Keyes is a Musician and don't lip-synch.

Omar is a moron. The SS should fire him for that.

Man to be in New Orleans today. We've got some snacks ready to go but I bet their cookin up some good stuff in the big easy.

Will the Dolphins ever win a SB?

Anyone got a link to the game?

Its getting old going into every season with ZERO chance at a championship.

Maybe it's your life that is getting old and boring? Or was it always that way?

Actually, you can tell who the Best Singers are by how well they perform live. Here, Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, in Cuba, Beny More, etc.

A SB special by Armando. How about it?

I always tend to forget Michael Jackson. I dont know if it is that he looked a bit strange to me or what. Huge talent.

Noboy wants to comment here. Yeah, I'm preparing my Porterhouses also. I don't go cheap.

I like the Ravens in a close game.

Oscar, speaking of forgotten, haven't seen the other Ray mentioned much in these Super Bowl talks...


Kris, SOME people discuss football here and SOME desperately try to sound as if they are experts at it. They aren't.

ROTFLMAO - Kris has a way of smacking people in the face with some reality!


Well, he's there Signal, he's there.

To me, it's even-Steven. May the best one Win.

After watching the Dullfins all season its refreshing to so see some 2 good teams play.

Lots of great Canes on the field today.

Has this person possibly suffered a stroke that has gone undiagnosed? Someone please help this guy.

Posted by: Phins78 | February 03, 2013 at 01:21 PM


This guy has a stroke alright. His right arm is twice the size of his left!

Blog Hit! Cha-Ching!!!!

Obama said it will be a good game. I wonder if the house and the senate agree on that??

Cris Carter said his top receivers ever are Jerry Rice, Terrel Owens, Randy Moss...in that order.

I love Football but can due without the over drawn Pre-Game show. There giving updates on team busus leaving Hotels and the snacks the players are taking.
For instance the Ravens are eating Grapes and Peanuts, Huhh??
