Okay, so with the increased possibility of an uncapped 2010, I think many NFL teams will decide to only tender their RFAs... Here's why. Under the uncapped rules, a player can not become an UFA until they have 6 years of tenure instead of the 4 it is currently. So, with OD, DRyans, RButler, Dressens, DAnderson all having 3 years of tenure, they are now RFAs and scheduled to be UFAs next season (under the collective bargaining agreement). However, the Texans can simply tender OD and DRyans the top level to keep them this year and give mid level tenders to the rest in order to keep them. All of those contracts would be very small. Then, if next season is uncapped, then they still have exclusive rights to all those guys until 2012- which means they will be bidding against nobody. With the uncertainty of the collective bargaining agreement and the economy in general, this is something to look for. It'll be interesting to see how many teams take this path- I expect the Texans may still re-sign DRyans but may just tender everyone else, including OD. It would certainly give them a financial advantage moving forward--- if 2010 is uncapped.
