Ya right
Leveraging their draft. Now OLB, DE, and S aren't as pressing. It gives them more options with the 7th pick. I think it was a good move.
So what does a RFA tender mean?!
works for me

We can match whatever offers they get if we dont we get draft picks from the team that signs them

How would they determine what round of draft pick we get ?

these players can negotiate with any club through a certain date. If the restricted free agent accepts an offer sheet from a new club, his old club has "right of first refusal," a seven-day period in which it may match the offer and retain him, or choose not to match the offer, in which case it may receive one or more draft picks for the upcoming draft from the player's new club. If an offer sheet is not executed, the player's rights revert to his old club the day after negotiations must end.

Restricted free agent tender. It means the guy can negotiate with other teams, but if signed by another club, that team has to give up draft picks (depending on the level of the tender given, it could be a 1st/3rd round tender compensation, 2nd round tender compensation, etc.).

The original club has first right of refusal and can basically take on that contract that was negotiated...or they can let the guy walk and get the pick(s).

not a bad move. it's a smart financial move.
Good move...there should be some more personnel actions between now and Friday. I want to see them offer Baas a contract...maybe Alex, we'll see. The uncertainty of the CBA really sucks...because it's looking more solid than ever that Cincy will have to trade Palmer. But, not knowing if/when the CBA will be resolved, it makes it tough to go into a lockout without a vet QB you trust (Harbaugh seems to trust Alex even though much of the Niner Nation doesn't).

From wiki

A player who has 3 years of experience is eligible for restricted free agency, whereby his current team has the chance to retain rights to this player by matching the highest offer any other NFL franchise might make to that player. The club can either block a signing or, in essence, force a trade by offering a salary over a certain threshold. In 2006, these thresholds were as follows:

If a club tenders an offer of $685,000 per year for a three year veteran, and $725,000 for a four year veteran, the player's current team has "right of first refusal" over the contract at those terms, and may sign the player at those terms.
If a club tenders an offer of $712,000 or 110% (whichever is greater) of the previous year's salary, then the current club has both "right of first refusal" and rights to a draft pick from the same round (or better) from the signing club. Essentially, this means that the new club must forfeit the draft pick to the old club if they wish to sign the player under these terms.
If a club tenders an offer of $1.552 million or 110% (whichever is greater) of the previous year's salary, then the current club has both "right of first refusal"; and rights to the first round draft pick from the signing club.
