    Have you ever picked up a newspaper or turned on SportsCenter only to wish you had a National Football League Free Agency Glossary?

    Great article there.


    Two things of note:

    In terms of qualifying offers:
    Qualifying Offer – The contractual value given to a restricted free agent by his team that indicates the amount of compensation due if his team declines to use the right of refusal during free agency. There are four main levels of tenders heading into the 2008 restricted free agency period, they are:

    Original draft round tender - $927,000
    Second round tender - $1.417 million
    First round tender - $2.017 million
    First and third round tender - $2.562 million
    And FA schedule:
    Important Dates
    February 7 - February 21: Teams can officially designate franchise and transition players.
    February 28: Deadline for clubs to submit qualifying offers to their restricted free agents whose contracts have expired and to whom they desire to retain a right of first refusal.
    February 29: Free Agency signing period begins.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
