A restricted free agent can negotiate with other teams but if an offer is agreed to, the team has a five-day period in which to match the offer. If it chooses not to, the team will receive a conditional draft pick for the player lost.
Most of the time, restricted free agents stay with their teams because teams generally match the offer sheet. If they choose not to, they will receive a conditional draft pick based on the tender they assigned to that player.
Trevor Williams: After a tremendous 2017 campaign, Williams missed more than half of the 2018 season with a knee injury. A team in need of a veteran defensive back could certainly give him a look.
Michael Davis: Pressed into action due to the injury to Williams, Davis posted 50 tackles, two forced fumbles and eight pass deflections this season. He wasn’t perfect, but he has plenty of room to develop.
Anthony Lanier: After spending the first two seasons of his career with the Washington Redskins, Lanier was signed to the Chargers’ practice squad and spent some time on the active roster toward the end of the season.
