You are correct. I forgot the old rules where teams could use a RFA tender on a player after he had already been franchise tagged the year before. They slapped the highest RFA tender on Sproles at the last minute.

Doesn't seem logical, but I guess that's why it no longer can be done.

And yup, the Chargers were being the same cheap Chargers by paying their backup RB the equivalent of top 5 RB salaries over two consecutive seasons.

You want analysis? Don't ask me: I'm just a Pollyanna lying idiotic know-nothing ball-watching stat boy.
