When teams assign first- or second-round tenders to their restricted free agents, like the Raiders did with quarterback Matt McGloin, we’ll devote full news stories to those moves. But for the most part, RFAs around the league can expect to be either non-tendered or given a low-end tender worth $1.671MM. Teams have until Wednesday to tender restricted free agents. We’ll round up the players that fall into that group on Saturday in the space below, with the latest updates added to the top of the list throughout the day….
- The Seahawks have offered center Patrick Lewis the low-end tender of $1.67MM, according to Tom Pelissero of USA Today (Twitter link). Lewis ascended into a full-time starting position with the Seahawks last season, starting all nine of the games in which he played. Lewis replaced Drew Nowak in October to become Seattle’s primary snapper. The 24-year-old ex-UDFA started in both of the Seahawks’ playoff games. Pro Football Focus didn’t have a strong preference for either Nowak or Lewis, ranking them as its Nos. 24 and 25 centers in 2015, respectively. Lewis will draw a raise of more than $1MM, however, after playing for $585K last season.
