Redskins Tender a Group of Their Restricted Free Agents

The 'Skins have tendered the bulk of the restricted free agents getting ready to hit the market today.

DT Kedric Golston, T Stephon Heyer, LB Rocky McIntosh, and S Reed Doughty all received second-round tenders from the Redskins.

QB Jason Campbell received a first-round tender.

The Redskins can now match any offer that other teams give Washington's restricted free agents. Should Washington choose to not match the offer of an opposing team, that team would have to surrender a draft pick to sign that restricted free agent (ex. Rams would have to give up a first-rounder for Campbell, but only a second-rounder for Golston).

If you're still confused then here's an explanation from Matt Terl over the Redskins Blog.

CB Carlos Rogers, DT Anthony Montgomery, OL Will Montgomery, OLB/DE Chris Wilson, and DT Lorenzo Alexander are all restricted free agents waiting to be tendered.

They will enter the free agent market as unrestricted FAs if they are not tendered by Friday.
