Default Re: Steelers Tender Offers to Six Restricted Free Agents

there are no 5th or 6th rd tenders.
there are 3 options
high - 2.7 million - 1st rd
mid - 1.9 mill - 2nd rd
low - 1.2 - right to match ( rd player was drafted)

johnson was undrafted so there would be no compensation with the low tender.
johnson is all but worthless as either a receiver or a blocker. if the steelers cut him, he'll be out of the NFL. just like carey davis , justin hartwig , sean mchugh, and all the other turds that they kept around.
