    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>Thursday is the deadline for teams to make qualifying offers to their restricted free agents whose contracts are expiring and to whom they desire to retain a right of first refusal/compensation.</p> <p>Translation of the league's language: It's time to attach a one-year tender offer to RFAs (players who are heading into their fourth seasons without a contract). It's a one-year contract offer that comes with draft-pick compensation attached. If a team signs a RFA to an offer sheet, the original club has a week to match. If it chooses not to, then it gets the compensation instead.</p> <p>NFC West expert Mike Sando pulled this information together that spells out teams' options with RFAs:</p> <p> <table border="0" align="center"> <tr> <td> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="500" bgcolor="#c0c0c0"> <tr> <td> <table border="0" cellspacing="1" width="100%"> <tr> <td bgcolor="#d6d6d6"><font face="Verdana" size="1"><strong>Tender</strong></font></td> <td align="center" bgcolor="#d6d6d6"><font face="Verdana" size="1"><strong>Right to match</strong></font></td> <td bgcolor="#d6d6d6"><font face="Verdana" size="1"><strong>Compensation if declined to match<br /> </strong></font></td> </tr> <tr> <td bgcolor="#ffffff"><font face="Verdana" size="1">$1.01M</font></td> <td align="center" bgcolor="#ffffff"><font face="Verdana" size="1">Yes</font></td> <td bgcolor="#ffffff"><font face="Verdana" size="1">Same round as when player originally drafted </font></td> </tr> <tr> <td bgcolor="#f4f4f4"><font face="Verdana" size="1">$1.545M</font></td> <td align="center" bgcolor="#f4f4f4"><font face="Verdana" size="1">Yes</font></td> <td bgcolor="#f4f4f4"><font face="Verdana" size="1">2009 second-round draft pick </font></td> </tr> <tr> <td bgcolor="#ffffff"><font face="Verdana" size="1">$2.198M</font></td> <td align="center" bgcolor="#ffffff"><font face="Verdana" size="1">Yes</font></td> <td bgcolor="#ffffff"><font face="Verdana" size="1">2009 first-round pick </font></td> </tr> <tr> <td bgcolor="#f4f4f4"><font face="Verdana" size="1">$2.792M</font></td> <td align="center" bgcolor="#f4f4f4"><font face="Verdana" size="1">Yes</font></td> <td bgcolor="#f4f4f4"><font face="Verdana" size="1">2009 first- and third-round picks</font></td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> </table> </p> <p>Here are the AFC South restricted free agents:</p> <p><strong><a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=hou" target="_new">Houston Texans</a></strong></p> <ul> <li>Receiver <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9837" target="_new">David Anderson</a></li> <li>Offensive lineman <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9675" target="_new">Rashad Butler</a></li> <li>Defensive end <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=4869" target="_new">Earl Cochran</a></li> <li>Tight end <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9684" target="_new">Owen Daniels</a></li> <li>Tight end <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=8612" target="_new">Joel Dreessen</a></li> <li>Defensive end <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9823" target="_new">Stanley McClover</a></li> </ul> <p><strong><a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=ind" target="_new">Indianapolis Colts</a></strong></p> <ul> <li>Linebacker <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9680" target="_new">Freddy Keiaho</a></li> </ul> <p><strong><a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=jac" target="_new">Jacksonville Jaguars</a></strong></p> <ul> <li>Linebacker <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9992" target="_new">Brian Iwuh</a></li> <li>Defensive end <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9799" target="_new">James Wyche</a></li> </ul> <p><strong><a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=ten" target="_new">Tennessee Titans</a></strong></p> <p>None.</p>
