Leave it to the patriots to pull up something I'm sure 99.99% of fans aren't even aware of, either way Blount will be a patriot or the patriots will get a comp pick.

Another example of how their FO is just ahead of the curve. At 1 year 1.1M plus performance bonuses if they get Blount pretty much vet min deal if no one makes an offer. If they lose him they get a comp pick. Even if it's a 5/6 rounder the $ paid is literally negligible.

Smart. Count me among the 99.99% who never heard of this rule.

I didn't even know the Pats were in line for comp picks, but after looking it up, they did let more players walk than they signed. I can't believe the Colts gave Jabaal Sheard $8.5M per with $10M coming in year one. Was Grigson still in the building?

I don't understand this tender. The article describes it as "seldom-used" but doesn't get into specifics regarding the circumstances in which it can be applied.

I had no idea you could 'tender' an UFA.

You can probably bet it will likely be eliminated in the next CBA lol.

I saw something somewhere that said it can be used if the FA doesn't sign until the last day of qualifying period for the comp stuff.

The idea being you pay him 110% of his salary he just got, so it's more, and it seemed nobody else wanted him. I guess.

Weird rule.

He doesn't have to sign it he is a FA after all, the tender basically means new england can match any offer he gets (they won't) he just has to sign a contract with another team by july 22nd or else he'll have to be a patriot. The patriots only tendered him because they want the comp pick, which won't be more than a 7th rounder most likely sign I doubt he signs for more than 2 million, or at least that's what I've gathered on this.

Who is eligible for this tender? Why don't teams use it?

That's not exactly true.

It sounds like he's just screwing over LeGarrette, to be Blount.
