The original content produced by the PFR staff during the past week:
- Luke Adams provided us with an update on restricted free agents. A large portion of the restricted free agent class, including Seahawks wideout Jermaine Kearse and Ravens safety Will Hill, simply signed their tenders. Defensive end George Johnson and safety Sean Richardson signed offer sheets with other teams, and Chris Polk had his RFA tender rescinded by the Eagles. Although the deadline to sign with another team was in April, two restricted free agents (both Browns) remain unsigned: safety Tashaun Gipson and defensive tackle Ishmaa’ily Kitchen.
- The deadline for teams to decide whether to pick up their 2012 first-rounder’s fifth-year option was last Sunday, and Luke reviewed who had their option exercised and who did not.
- Luke asked which draft-day faller ultimately ended up being the best value. More than a quarter of you pointed to the Cowboys‘ selection of defensive end/linebacker Randy Gregory, while 18-percent of you said Texans‘ wideout Jaelen Strong.
- As teams look to ink their draft picks to rookie contracts, you can stay updated on the progress of your favorite team.
