PFR Originals: 4/17/16 – 4/24/16

The original content and analysis produced by the PFR staff during the past week:

  • Friday marked the deadline for restricted free agents to sign offer sheets with competing clubs, and Luke Adams provided an update on the latest RFA news. Just three RFAs — 49ers linebacker Michael Wilhoite, Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall, and Cowboys guard Ronald Leary — remain unsigned. Four restricted free agents did receive offers from other teams, but only two (receiver Chris Hogan and defensive end Benson Mayowa) ended up changing uniforms. Click the link for the full roundup.
  • Teams across the NFL have until May 3 to officially pick up their 2017 options on players who are entering the final year of their rookie contracts. These fifth-year options can only be exercised on first-round picks, and the salaries are determined by where players were drafted and what position they play. Bookmark our 2017 Fifth-Year Option Decision Tracker to keep up on all the latest.
  • With the draft set to begin on Thursday, Rory Parks asked readers to chime in with their thought on possible sleepers and busts in the latest edition of Community Tailgate. So far, readers of PFR have pointed to Carson Wentz and Joey Bosa as potential busts, while listing Southern Mississippi receiver Mike Thomas and North Carolina Central cornerback Ryan Smith as underrated sleepers.
