White92 wrote a Fan Post on the Green Bay Packers decision to tender contracts to (likely) restricted free agents LG Daryn Colledge and K Mason Crosby. According to the Press-Gazette, both players received a second round tender. Which means they should receive about $1.759 million in 2011.
It doesn't matter that the players haven't signed those contracts either. It just means they are restricted, instead of unrestricted, free agents. If they don't sign, then they'll go through the same drama that SS Atari Bigby and DE Johnny Jolly went through last summer. And those contracts are not guaranteed.
Colledge received the same tender, second round, that he received last year. Based on what the Giants did, a second round tender is almost the default option. I expect the Packers will tender all the players who played at all last season.
