The Patriots tendered restricted free agent OLB Pierre Woods at the second-round level today. The one-year tender for Woods is for $1.54 million.
This was the expected tender for Woods. Had the Patriots given Woods the low tender, they would have risked losing him without receiving compensation.
Now, if a team signs Woods to an offer sheet and the Patriots don't match, the Patriots would receive a second-round draft choice.
The Patriots did not submit a tender offer on OL Wesley Britt, another restricted free agent. Britt could potentially stick with the team with a reduced contract.
