San Francisco 49ers cornerback Emmanuel Moseley signed his exclusive rights tender, per his agent. Here is the definition of an ERFA:

An exclusive rights free agent (ERFA) is any NFL veteran [who reaches the end of his contract] with less than three accrued seasons. Any player who receives a team’s exclusive rights minimum salary tender will not be able to negotiate with another team, and the player must only re-sign with his original team.

Moseley signs his tender just in time for training camp. He’ll make $675,000 in 2020. I wonder if there was a delay because Moseley tried to negotiate a better deal? The team likely wants to see him put up another year as he did last season. I’m bullish on Moseley’s talent. I think he has star potential, and I don’t throw that term around loosely.

Two stats from Moseley: He and Kwon Alexander both started eight games. They both had 20 stops. Also, Moseley’s success rate in coverage was the ninth-best out of all cornerbacks. The eye test matches up with the numbers. When that happens, you keep those guys around.
