Default Steelers tender offer to four players

Steelers tender offer to four players
Thursday, February 28, 2008
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Steelers issued a one-year contract tender today of $1,417,000 to wide receiver Nate Washington, a restricted free agent, Washington's agent, Tom Tafelski, said.

They also issued tenders to three others: offensive tackle Trai Essex, guard Chris Kemoeatu, and long-snapper Greg Warren. They did not make one to linebacker Andre Frazier, thus making him an unrestricted free agent.

The Steelers refused to divulge publicly the amount of the tenders issued to each player, although they must set those amounts when they report the moves to the NFL today.

The amount of the tenders is important because it will determine what compensation the Steelers receive if a player signs elsewhere and they decline to match. The amounts of the one-year tenders can range from $2,562,000 to $927,000 and the compensation can range from first- and third-round draft picks to none.

By giving Washington his tender, the Steelers not only maintain their rights to match any contract he might sign with another team, starting tomorrow, but they would receive a second-round draft pick in return if they decline to match.

I figured Frazier would be the odd man out.

I think we could have offered him 3rd round money and still been able to keep him.

If not I would have gladly taken a 3rd rd pick for him. Oh well, what do I know.

i like all the tenders that they made.. so it looks like that they know frazier might not be able to sign somewhere and bring him back at min sal.

Good moves by the Steelers. I think we need to trade or release Cedric Wilson. He is making to much money to be the #4 WR. If Nate is going to be the #3 WR, why are we paying Cedric. This frees up more salary cap space for a possible free agent signing.

I bash Nate, but I do like him as well, he just has to hold on to the ball. As a #3 he may get 4 or 5 balls thrown to him a game, unlike Ward who will get 8 thrown his way, and drop 1 or 2, he'll still make 6 catches...if Nate drops 1 or 2 of the 5 thrown his way, that's 3 catches, 2 drops. Ugh. His drops kill us more because he gets thrown to less. A 3rd and 6, 7 yard hitch, with the pass getting dropped is huge, every single time.

Nate is Hines' future replacement, although we could trade up to get Jake Long if we got the pick. I dont know what i want....we will see i guess.
