Redskins give Chris Wilson second-round tender

One final post tonight on the Redskins' restricted free agents. The team made a second-round tender today to linebacker Chris Wilson, according to a tweet by Wilson's representation, ProStar Sports.

So if you're keeping score at home, the team issued tenders today to quarterback Jason Campbell, cornerback Carlos Rogers, linebacker Rocky McIntosh, offensive tackle Stephon Heyer, defensive tackle Kedric Golston and safety Reed Doughty. It's believed the team is negotiating a contract extension with defensive tackle Lorenzo Alexander, who would become a restricted free agent Friday.

That leaves just two players slated to become restricted free agents whose exact status is uncertain: defensive tackle Anthony Montgomery and guard Will Montgomery. That doesn't mean the team didn't tender the two; it just means that we couldn't nail it down today. The team is expected to release a full list of the players it tendered at some point Thursday.

The players who were tendered offers have a very good chance of being on the roster when training camp opens. Not many teams are expected to pursue restricted free agents and part with draft picks. In some cases, teams that have have slapped a low-tender on the player might actually be trying to signal to other teams that a player isn't valued and therefore could be had via trade for relatively cheap. But for the most part, if a guy is tendered, there's a good chance you'll see him wearing Redskins colors next year.

Good move. He is perfect fit for a rotation at OLB in a 3-4. They had no choice but to tender him at this level since he was undrafted.

I like what I see today, glad they're thinking long-term with Lorenzo.

Browns have released OG Hank Fraley, and PFT reported that Browns are likely to release OG Rex Hadnot. Hadnot it only 28, was rated #17 by ProFootballFocus for OG's(Dockery was rated #24) and Fraley, 32, was rated #31. Either would be a good pickup, expecially Hadnot.

Chris is a baller but if someone offers a second rounder then you best call the mayflower truck.

It sounds a bit funny that Skins could only find 2 categories for their RFA, 1st round tender or 2nd round tender. I would have guessed there would have been more discretion between these guys.

Here's a couple of PFT post. One for Zeke and one for those wanting Rolle:

----------------------

Posted by Michael David Smith on March 3, 2010 10:33 PM ET
Cardinals G.M. Rod Graves has made it clear that his team is willing to trade wide receiver Anquan Boldin.

But what would it take to get Boldin out of Arizona?

Michael Lombardi reported on NFL Network that the Cardinals "only want a third-round pick" for Boldin. That's not too high a price for a starting wide receiver.

-------

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on March 3, 2010 10:09 PM ET
Conventional wisdom says that the Cardinals will make a strong push to keep safety Antrel Rolle, but they don't want to give him equal money to teammate Adrian Wilson.

Well, something has to give because Rolle wants Wilson money. More, actually. Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune writes that Rolle is expecting a deal that averages $8 million-per-season.

Coach Mike Shanahan has said he expects Campbell "to be here" this season,
By Cindy Boren | March 3, 2010; 6:58 PM ET
======================================================================================
so if Shanny expects JC to be here.. given a 1st round tender...
Isnt that a back-handed complement?
Meaning.. no other team in their right mind would give up a 1st and 3 Mil in salary for JC. And we, (Skins) who are still in our "right mind" wont give you an extension, either.
So is JC essentially, "Sign and Trade Bait"? Or, are we stuck with him for one more year..

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
good post, frediefritz..
Browns along with Jax are by far the deepest in quality OLine guys.. Recall how JAX had to release Pashos last fall. Pashos would of been the best player on the Skins line last year.. And Vinny could of had him for his minimum contract at least for 2009... But we know he did nothing and SF grabbed him on the second day of his release. And they (SF) are desparately trying to re-sign him now..

I hope someone from the Shanny regime is on this and makes a move to snatch one of these guys.......

Coach Kryswywyyuwuexuzuewususki and his disgusting rat-face and his team of skinny ugly white boys need to get out of my state immediately. They're losers. We are through with them.

And they can take Carlos Rogers with them while they're at it. I'm totally through with that loser. What a delusional malcontent. I hope he gets a low-ball tender his whole career and get buried on our bench and gets roundly booed anytime he takes the field.

Al Davis...

1st and 3rd for CB Routt who started 1 game last year.

Lowest tender to Kirk Morrison who has played 5 years and has never missed a game and has only averaged 100 tackles a game.

And now the Raiders give long snapper Jon Condo a second round tender.

It could always be worse...

Diesel, we gotta start trading with the Raiders. Albright for a 2nd rounder. Portis for a first and third. Think Al might want Darrell Green?

Rogers is only expressing what most every RFA out there is feeling.

Dude could make $25-$30 million easily on the open market this offseason had there been a CBA extension or renegotiation. Instead he's making $3 million. That's a substantial difference and should be understandable to any sensible, logical, or even halfway dim-witted individual, regardless of the personal feelings you have towards the guy.

Having said that, this situation is clearly benefiting the Redskins. We get to keep a number useful players at an extreme bargain for short term deals AND we get to let our free-spending owner out on the prowl for UFAs under the guidance of Shanahan and Allen. Win-win for us.

Sorry Carlos, but your loss is our gain.

I'm not too good at math, but are you telling me that there's a player out there who has amassed 8000 tackles in the last 5 years, yet has never been recognized for it? Damn, that's a lot of hits.

So its a "win-win" retaining pis-sed off disgruntled players who, given they were not very effective in 2009. How much better will they be "hating" their employer in 2010?

I know...hopefully he doesn't go into this year so distracted by this perceived snub that he's constantly beaten by double moves and consistently lets interceptions slip right thru those salad tongs that he calls hands.
