For example, on July 1 at noon could the Rangers email Richards' agent an email with 3 SPCs attached and tell him to sign whichever he prefers? Give him an option between something like:
$32MM/4 years (AAV = $8.0MM, but it ends after four years when he's 35.)
$40.5MM/6 years (AAV = $6.75MM, lower cap hit, room for another contract at the end.)
$55MM/10 years (AAV = $5.5MM, still lower cap hit, set for life.)
UFA negotiations can involve as many different proposals as each party wants. It's like any other business deal, you can offer 10 different contracts if you want, but only 1 of them can be signed (obviously)
