Today: Tender Offers Due For Restricted Free Agents

The Eagles have until today to tender a one-year offer to any or all of their soon-to-be restricted free agents. If any of the 10 players is not offered a tender, then he will become a free agent at 12:01 a.m. on Friday when the new league year begins. Also, remember that the trading period also begins tomorrow.

Don't forget that we will have a live chat beginning at midnight to usher in the start of free agency.

Barring a last-second extension of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, here are the 10 players who are about to become restricted free agents in the uncapped. Restricted free agents have less than six years of service in the NFL. In a capped year, only four years of service was needed for unrestricted free agency.

Here are the Eagles' potential restricted free agents.
