Wednesday, March 3, 2010 - Nashville, TN
The Tennessee Titans offered tenders to all six of their restricted free agents today.
The Titans placed first round tenders on defensive tackle Tony Brown, linebacker Stephen Tulloch and tight end Bo Scaife. If an offer is made to one of these players by another team, the Titans have the right to match any other teams offer. Otherwise they will receive compensation.
It should be noted that Brown's agent has stated that he and the team will continue to try and work out a long term contract before signing the tender. If a long term agreement is not reached, Brown will make 2.621 million on a one year deal.
After being paid 4.5 million in 2009 under the franchise tag, tight end Bo Scaife will be paid 4.9 million in 2010, as this is 110% of his salary from last season.
The Titans placed second round tenders on running back Lendale White, defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson and defensive end Dave Ball.
All of these players will still be available via trade, the most likely candidate being White. After trading this year's second round pick to New England last season, The Titans will likely try and trade White to regain a second round pick.
Free Agency begins at 11 p.m., Thursday March 4, 2010.
