Jake was also an RFA when he re-signed. Big difference. As for Read being a "3rd liner", that's only during regular strength and he still produces. The whole mentality of "well, he's a 3rd liner so he should be paid X amount of dollars" is rather outdated. Read can fill in on various lines of this club. If he's anywhere else, he's a solid 2nd liner with 60 point upside.
