Upcoming Free Agents

Ok, so like most of you, I'm still celebrating this victory and I keep seeing sports writers talking about how the Saints might not be able to keep this team together because of all the upcoming restricted free agents, but they're restricted, right? Meaning we can match any offer.. So why would Mickey Loomis & Co. have a tough time keeping the core group together? Also, I know we have 3 unrestricted free agents (Sharper, Fujita, Brunell) but would someone be able to provide the names of all the Saints restricted free agents, please? I know we have Pierre Thomas, David Thomas, Billy Miller, Jammal Brown, Lance Moore, Jahri Evans, Jermon Bushrod, Remi Ayodele, Roman Harper, Marvin Mitchell, Mike Bell, Anthony Hargrove, Garrett Hartley who are all set to become RFA's, is there anyone else (that's basically the whole team).. This is still a young team and I'd love to see all these guys retained, but realistically we have to let some go, so who do you think stays and who do you think goes? 

I think it's critical to bring back Darren Sharper for another year, same with Scott Fujita. Of course guys like Jahri Evans, Pierre Thomas, Roman Harper, Anthony Hargrove, David Thomas, Lance Moore (somewhat) Garrett Hartley, Jammal Brown are all guys that need to stay..

One last question, I don't understand the RFA statuses in the NFL. In the NHL it's pretty simple, if the player's contract is up and is younger than 25, he's a restricted free agent. If he's older than 25 and hasn't played 3 full NHL seasons (or something like that) and his contract is up, he's still a restricted free agent. But Jammal Brown has definitely played more than 3 seasons and is 28, so how come he's a restricted free agent?

thanks!
