    One new twist to free agency this year is with restricted free agents.

    In past years, there have been three options for teams with their restricted free agents.

    • * Teams could place a low tender on a RFA, which meant that if another team signed the player to an offer sheet, the original team could match it or receive a draft pick matching the round in which the player entered the league.

      * Teams could place a first-round tender on a RFA, which meant that if another team signed the player to an offer sheet, the original team could match it or receive a first-round draft pick.

      * Teams could place a high tender on a RFA, which meant that if another team signed the player to an offer sheet, the original team could match it or receive a first-round pick and a third-round pick.

    This year, as part of the new collective bargaining agreement, a second-round tender has been added. If a team places that tender on a RFA, the original team could match any offer or would receive a second-round pick in return.

    The tender amounts are as follows:

    Low tender -- $850,000
    Second-round tender -- $1.3 million
    First-round tender -- $1.85 million
    First- and third-round tender -- $2.35 million
