They can sign with any team but the team that has the right of said player has a week to match the offer. Players can be assigned picks. Like Mike Wallace last year would have cost anyone that signed him a first rounder. Also the cost of a RFA tender is less I believe. Mike Wallace tender last year was only 2.7 million dollars, while franchise tags for a WR is 10.3 million dollars.
