Why would we not give him the 10 pct raise on his contract that RFA status demands and then wait around to see if anyone gives an offer sheet.

It really is a win-win situation. We either get Coburn for 1.32M next season or someone (more likely) offers him 2M+ and we get a 1st and a 3rd round draft pick. Sign me up!
Here are the numbers for this past season:

$994,433 or below - No Compensation
$994,434 - $1,506,717 - 2010 3rd round pick
$1506,718 - $3,013,433 - 2010 2nd round pick
$3,013,433 - $4,520,150 - 2010 1st round pick, 2010 3rd round pick
$4,520,151 - $6,026,867 - 2010 1st round pick, 2010 2nd round pick, 2010 3rd round pick
$6,026,868 - $7,533,584 - 2010 1st round pick, 2011 1st round pick, 2010 2nd round pick, 2010 3rd round pick
Over $7,533,584 - 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 1st round picks.


So assuming the cap doesn't drop, a team would have to offer over 3 million for a 1st to be included. I also doubt he will get an offer sheet. Every year we all think offersheets will get thrown around, but they almost never are.
