2011 Restricted Free Agent List (2010 CBA, 3-5 year RFA rules)

Rather than sort through the flurry of tenders that were going on before the CBA expired I am going to just list all of the guys that are eligible under the 2010 rules for restricted free agency. Some guys here are a virtual guarantee to be cut or traded away on the cheap. DeAngelo Williams from Carolina fits into this category. With Steward and Goodson behind him, it is projected that the Panthers will try to save some cash and let him go. Ahmad Bradshaw is another top tier running back that has fallen out of favor with his head coach due to fumbelitis. Many times when a team is interested in a guy like this, they can contact the club who has rites to the player and then that club may pass on the information that they will be traded if they sign their tender. This allows the two teams to work out an agreement outside of the tender offers. Tony Scheffler, Rob Sims, and Alphonso Smith all came to us this way last year.

Instead of searching through a mountain of internet hype and rumors I am going to pass the onus on to the comments section of this thread for speculation on individual players. This is a master list, to let people browse and use as a resource to see who may or may not be available for the Lions in 2011. Once again, if you guys see a name here that has been signed to a contract by a team just let me know and provide a verification link please. Just to be clear, I am not worried about removing tender offers at this point, only guys who have actually signed a tender or a contract.
