2. Also if an undrafted FA signs a 2 year deal with a team then signs a 1 year deal with another team, is he still going to be a restricted FA at the end of the third year?
3. What about first rounders where the team declines the option years? Would they be restricted free agents for the next team that picks them up? Apologies for the interrogation haha.
2. That's a pretty good question. The scenario you described isn't actually possible because all offer sheets have to be for at least two years. Players can be restricted multiple times though, but I'm not sure there's much info about a guy changing teams. I have to do some research, because a player coming off a one-year rookie contract could theoretically then be signed for two years and become restricted again after year 3. Just not sure that's actually happened.
3. If a team declines an option on a first round pick they're basically declining their right of first refusal. So that player will become unrestricted once his contract expires.
