Minor NFL Transactions: 4/24/17

Today’s minor moves:

  • Redskins linebacker Will Compton has signed his restricted free agent tender, a source tells John Keim of ESPN.com. Compton had been assigned the original round tender, meaning he’s now scheduled to earn a non-guaranteed $1.797MM base salary for the 2017 campaign. Washington has now re-signed each of its RFAs, as running back Chris Thompson inked his second-round tender last week. Compton, 27, started 15 games for the Redskins last season, racking up 103 tackles while grading as the league’s No. 73 linebacker among 87 qualifiers, per Pro Football Focus.
  • Another restricted free agent — Chiefs wide receiver Albert Wilson — has also signed his tender, tweets Adam Caplan of ESPN.com. Like Compton, Wilson is now set to earn nearly $1.8MM during the upcoming season. Wilson, 24, managed only 31 receptions for 279 yards and two touchdowns in 2016. He’ll become an unrestricted free agent in 2018.
