Unrestricted Free Agents (25):
Any player with four or more accrued seasons and an expired contract; free to negotiate and sign with any team.
Restricted Free Agents (2):
A player with three accrued seasons and an expired contract. RFAs are free to negotiate and sign with any team, but their original team can offer them a qualifying offer that can come with the right of first refusal and/or draft-pick compensation.
A club can designate one franchise player or one transition player among its potential restricted or unrestricted free agents and guarantees another year under contract if certain conditions are met. The Raiders designated Josh Jacobs as a franchise player on March 6.
