Cleveland Browns May Have a Restricted Free Agent Problem After April 15

April 10, 2010   ·     ·   Jump to comments

April 15th is quickly approaching, and this is not tax talk, but for the Cleveland Browns and their restricted free agents (RFA).
The Browns originally had six RFA's that they tendered on March 4, each with a second round price on their heads.
Those tendered included: safety Abram Elam, running back Jerome Harrison, fullback Lawrence Vickers, inside linebacker D'Qwell Jackson, linebacker Jason Trusnik, and outside linebacker Matt Roth.
Of all those names, only Trusnik has signed his tender offer back on March 12.
Jackson and his representation have been very vocal and unhappy with the fact the Browns are not giving him a long-term contract, but he has been the only player to voice his opinion on this matter.
To quickly clarify, if another team makes an offer to any of these remaining tendered players, the Browns can match the offer to retain said player, or let him go and get the second round pick of the signing team.
Now this is good until April 15.
