[QUOTE=ljr@work;3531777]... you sure about this? the sirius guys were stating this not to be the case ...
... pat kirwan said there was no difference for seattle if it was their original pick or one further down as long at it was still a 2nd rounder ... in regards to being able to sign a RFA ...
Unless the NFL changed the rule, Pat Kirwin is dead wrong.
The Redskins got screwed a couple of years ago on this. They signed a RFA with a 2nd round tender but the NFL rejected the offer sheet because they didn't have a 2nd rounder. So the Skins traded for a 2d rounder but the offer sheet was rejected again because the Skins new 2d rounder was lower than their original pick.
Why do you think Seattle couldn't sign Marshall to an offer sheet?
Seattle has 2 1st rounders (6th & 14th). Seattle wanted the Broncos to take the 14th, but the Broncos said "no" because they were entitled to the 6th overall under the Rules. So Seattle didn't sign Marshall to an offer sheet although they had flown him in for a visit and wined & dined him.
