That's not a typical behaviour of our FO, we usually don't weaken our restricted free-agent players' hand eventhough we're not going to match the offer.
I think the something went very bad during negotitations with Neal and FO.
It may be there are some teams that are reluctant to offer a restricted free agent a contract if they think is team may match. So it probably won't hurt Neil. If he has interest from multiple teams, it shouldn't really be an issue.
