One follow-up from the contract signed by DL Mike Wright late last week:
The deal was the restricted free-agent tender of $1.417 million, meaning Wright is playing under a one-year, $1.417 million contract.
Wright is now scheduled for unrestricted free agency after the 2008 season.
In some cases, restricted free agents like Wright sign longer-term deals. That was what happened with OL Billy Yates in 2007. Yates was a restricted free agent, but instead of signing his tender offer, he inked a three-year extension through 2009.
