Section 5Individually Negotiated Limitations on Player Movement
All individually negotiated limitations on player movement are prohibited, except as specifically provided as follows:
If a Restricted Free Agent has been tendered a Qualifying Offer of (a) Paragraph 5 Salary of at least the applicable amount stated in Section 2(b)(i)(1) above or (b) at least 110% of his prior year’s Paragraph 5 Salary, whichever is greater (in each case with all other terms of his prior year contract carried forward), and the Qualifying Offer is fully guaranteed for skill and injury, the Restricted Free Agent and his Prior Club may negotiate and contract for an individual Right of First Refusal with respect to the services of such player.
Any Unrestricted Free Agent shall be permitted to negotiate and contract for an individual Right of First Refusal with any Club with respect to the services of such player.
Any player (other than a Free Agent) with fewer than three Accrued Seasons is prohibited from negotiating any individual limitations on his movement in his Player Contract or otherwise, and all Clubs are prohibited from negotiating any such limitations with such players.
Any player that is designated a Franchise Player or a Transition Player may not negotiate and contract for an individual Right of First Refusal with any Club. (v) Any individual Right of First Refusal that is negotiated and contracted for pursuant to Subsections (i) and (ii) above shall be void and unenforceable unless it is specified in a separate document signed by such player in the form annexed hereto as Appendix D, acknowledging such player’s waiver of the express right that Free Agents have under this Agreement to be free of any Right of First Refusal restriction on their freedom of movement.
Rights of First Refusal negotiated pursuant to this Section 5 may be traded or assigned as part of a player’s contract.
