Daniel Sorensen, safety for the Kansas City Chiefs, is a restricted free agent. The Chiefs have offered him a second-round tender. Here is what that means.
As a restricted free agent, Daniel Sorensen is only having a slight bit of the experience that unrestricted free agents will experience in the next 24 hours. The Kansas City Chiefs safety can, in fact, receive an offer from another interested team. Whether or not he ends up signing with that team, however, is up to the Chiefs at this point.
Sorensen hasn’t been in the league long enough to enjoy his complete freedom. The Chiefs had the right to tender him a contract offer and they did, which means they are interested in bringing him back and given the right of first refusal for another team to sign him. Given a second-round tender, Sorensen will have one of the following happen to him:
- No one will be interested in signing Sorensen and he will return to the Chiefs on a non-guaranteed, one-year deal worth $2.7 million.
- Sorensen will sign a contract offer with a new team and the Chiefs will decide to let him go. That new team will then give the Chiefs a second round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
- Sorensen will sign a contract offer with a new team and the Chiefs will decide to match that deal. Sorensen will then remain with Kansas City under the terms of this brand new deal.
