Will Carlos Rogers And Rocky McIntosh Sign Restricted Free Agency Tenders?

Today, June 1, is the last day for NFL restricted free agents to sign their free agent tenders. There are 37 such players in the NFL right now, and two of those players -- Carlos Rogers and Rocky McIntosh -- are employed by the Washington Redskins. McIntosh has a second-round tender, while Rogers has a first-round tender.

Here's how tenders work, according to the NFL Labor web site.

For the 37 RFAs who have not signed contracts (as of May 27), the original clubs retain exclusive rights to sign the player. All RFAs can sign by June 1 the contract their original club tendered before March 5 - the first day of the 2010 league year. If a player does not sign by June 1, the original club can extend the qualifying offer and thereby retain exclusive rights to the player.

If the original qualifying offer is greater than 110 percent of the player's 2009 base salary and the player does not sign that contract by June 15, the team can substitute the June 1 tender with a new June 15th tender of 110 percent of the RFA's 2009 base salary and continue to retain exclusive rights to the player.  If the player does not sign by Week 10, he cannot play in 2010.

It remains to be seen whether they'll sign their tenders, but regardless, both are expected to suit up for the Redskins next year.
