The New York Jets have placed restricted free-agent tenders on nine of their free agents.
Now we need to find out if those tenders are worth anything.
First, here's the rundown, with the draft compensation or considerations they'll receive if signed by another team:
Quarterback Kellen Clemens (third-round choice)
Receiver Santonio Holmes (first- and third-round choices)
Receiver Brad Smith (second-round choice)
Offensive lineman Robert Turner (first refusal)
Cornerback Antonio Cromartie (first- and third-round choices)
Cornerback Drew Coleman (sixth-round choice)
Safety James Ihedigbo (first refusal)
Safety Eric Smith (third-round choice)
Kick Nick Folk (sixth-round choice)
ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini points out these tenders might not mean one iota under the new collective bargaining agreement.
Many of these players -- Holmes and Cromartie included -- could be unrestricted free agents under the new CBA. That means the club can't use tenders, and those players would be bound for the open market.
The Jets already used their franchise tag on linebacker David Harris.
