The Bengals have tendered contracts to their three restricted free agents, reports Tom Pelissero of USA Today (Twitter link). According to Pelissero, wide receiver Andrew Hawkins, linebacker Vincent Rey, and wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher all received the lowest of the three possible RFA tenders from the Bengals, meaning their one-year offers are worth $1.431MM.
All three players could now choose to accept their respective contract tenders and play for the Bengals on a one-year, $1.431MM contract in 2014. They could also elect to sign an offer sheet with another suitor in free agency next week, though the Bengals will have the right to match any offer. Because Hawkins, Rey, and Sanzenbacher were all undrafted, Cincinnati wouldn’t be eligible for any compensatory picks if the club’s RFAs sign elsewhere.
