thanks in advance (learning bit by bit !)
To make sure I'm interpreting your question properly, I'll do a timeline.

1) Player X becomes RFA, Team # has rights.
2) Player X offered contract by Team %.

Three possibilities:

3a) Player X signs, Team # matches
3b) Player X signs, Team # chooses not to match (or trades player X to team % instead)

3c) Player X does not sign offer sheet.

If you're referring to 3a or 3b, Player X is under contract to team % pending #'s action. He may not sign another sheet.

If you're referring to 3c, Player X may sign another team's offer sheet.

Unless I'm wrong on this .
