Seahawks announce RFA tenders
By Mike Sando
The Seahawks announced their restricted free-agent tenders as follows Thursday:
Ben Obomanu, Rob Sims, Chris Spencer and Darryl Tapp were tendered in their original draft rounds. That means the Seahawks would get a seventh-rounder for Obomanu, fourth-rounder for Sims, first-rounder for Spencer and second-rounder for Tapp if they declined to match offers from other teams for those players.
The team did not extend tenders to tackle Brandon Frye or linebacker Lance Laury. Linebacker David Hawthorne was tendered as an exclusive-rights free agent. He basically had no options.
I see no big surprises among these RFA tenders. The prices are relatively reasonable and none of the money is guaranteed.
