The Browns have sent letters to their five unsigned restricted free agents — S Abram Elam, RB Jerome Harrison, ILB D'Qwell Jackson, OLB Matt Roth, FB Lawrence Vickers — informing them their one-year tender offers will be reduced if they don't sign by June 15, The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reported Friday.

The Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NFL and NFL Players Association allows for teams to pull contract offers to restricted free agents who remain unsigned after June 15 and instead tender them one-year contracts for a 10 percent raise over their previous year's salaries.

Elam, Harrison, Jackson and Vickers were all tendered at the second-round level and received one-year, $1.759 million contract offers as players with four accrued NFL seasons. Roth, who has five accrued seasons, was also tendered at the second-round level and received a one-year, $1.809 million contract offer.

Per The Plain Dealer, Vickers would receive a one-year contract offer for around $589,000 after June 15. Harrison would receive a one-year, $593,000 offer, with Jackson garnering a one-year, $704,000 offer, Roth receiving a one-year, $770,000 offer and Elam getting a one-year, $1.65 million offer after June 15, according to The Plain Dealer.

Harrison and Vickers are taking part in the Browns' mandatory minicamp this week, but Elam, Jackson and Roth are not present.
