A RFA is a player who doesn't have a contract, just like a UFA (but in this case his team retains his rights). A signed offer sheet immediately becomes a binding contract with the new team if the other team involved declines to match it.

That means that he goes directly from someone who isn't their property to someone they have under contract. The new team never owns his rights in the absence of a contract, so he never has RFA status for that team.
