NFL: AFC Wild Card Round-Los Angeles Chargers at Jacksonville Jaguars Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL playoffs continue as the conference championships get underway this weekend, but the 2022 season ended for the Jacksonville Jaguars last week, following a 27-20 loss against the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Divisional playoffs.

Unrestricted free agent (UFA): “Any player with four or more accrued seasons and an expired contract; free to negotiate and sign with any team.”

Restricted free agent (RFA): “A player with three accrued seasons and an expired contract.

If the tender is withdrawn by a team, the RFA becomes an unrestricted free agent.”

Exclusive rights free agent (ERFA): “Any player with fewer than three accrued seasons and an expired contract. If his original team offers him a one-year contract at the league minimum (based on his credited seasons), the player cannot negotiate with other teams.”
