"This league covets draft picks. And so, in order to go after a restricted guy, No. 1, you have to give a number now that's something that we won't match as a team," Newsome said. "And then you've got to also give up a significant draft choice, because we would put some numbers on there that would make it prohibitive for people. … There's going to be some restricted free agents that we would like, but is it going to be worth giving up a significant amount of cash and cap and a draft pick? When you deal with that double-whammy, even though the rules have been relaxed, you just go, 'Nah, no, I wouldn't do it.' That's just my philosophy."
