PRACTICE SQUAD FREE AGENTS (PS FAs)
The Ravens have usually re-signed most of their Practice Squad players to “Future” contracts for the following year. Over the past 2 days, the Ravens signed 5 of their 10 Practice Squad players.
The 5 players from the Practice Squad that haven’t yet been re-signed are:
WR Kenny Bell
OT Dieugot Joseph
DT Kapron Lewis-Moore
CB Robert Nelson
LB Darnell Sankey
Most of these players will likely be re-signed to one-year contracts of $480K, but some, because they already have a credited season (or two), will received base salaries of $555K or $630K.
EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS FREE AGENTS (ERFAs)
These players must be tendered contracts of the league minimum, based on the player’s length of service in the league ($630K, $555K or $480K). Once tendered, these players are fully under the team’s control and are not free to negotiate with other teams.
The Ravens have 7 players who are Exclusive Rights Free Agents (ERFAs):
WR Quincy Adeboyejo
RB Alex Collins
CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste
TE Vince Mayle
LB Patrick Onwuasor
G Maurquice Shakir
OL Matt Skura
In past years, because of the minimal cost and minimal impact on the Salary Cap, the Ravens usually tendered all of their ERFAs.
RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS (RFAs)
These are players whose contracts have expired and who have 3 years of accrued service time. The team must tender the player with an RFA offer. Once tendered, another team can sign the player to a RFA offer sheet, but the Ravens then have 7 days to match that offer sheet and retain the player under the terms of that offer sheet. If the Ravens were to choose not to match the offer sheet, they would then receive compensation based on the level of RFA tender made to the player.
There are 3 RFA tenders: 1st Round Tender, 2nd Round Tender and the Low Tender.
The Ravens have no players who are pending Restricted Free Agents (RFAs).
UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS (UFAs)
The following 12 players are Unrestricted Free Agents (UFAs) and will be free to sign with other teams if they haven’t re-signed with the Ravens before Free Agency begins on March 14th at 4:00 p.m.:
