RFA deadline passes with no offers

Thursday's deadline for restricted free agents to sign offer sheets with other teams passed quietly, with none of the Panthers' RFAs moving on.

In fact, only one RFA league-wide changed teams via an offer sheet this year, RB Mike Bell who went from New Orleans to Philadelphia.

For the most part, the deadline ends the drama about the RFAs, though some could skip minicamp and OTAs if they choose. 

Of the RFAs well enough to participate, only CB Richard Marshall has skipped all the offseason workouts here. He received the second-round tender of $1.759 million.

QB Matt Moore had previously signed his tender, and DT Tank Tyler signed his Wednesday night. TE Jeff King will sign his Friday, and the agents for DT Louis Leonard and LB James Anderson said they would sign soon, likely next week.

LB Thomas Davis and CB C.J. Wilson are the other two RFAs who were tendered, but both have been around the stadium working out.

They said that the only RFA to change teams was mike bell. I could have sworn that Brandon Marshall left Denver for maimi and he was a RFA.

RK - Brandon Marshall was an RFA until he signed his tender, therefore allowing Miami to trade for less than the required 1st round tender (his prior restriction).

Hey RK: Reading is FUNdamental. Bell was the only RFA to change teams "VIA AN OFFER SHEET."
