Steelers | Tenders Coming

The Tribune Review speculates the Pittsburgh Steelers may give restricted free agent LB Joey Porter and DL Aaron Smith might get a larger tender offer ($1.227 million) to protect them as their compensation would be a first-round draft pick. Four other restricted free agents, PK Kris Brown, backup RB Amos Zereoue, backup TE Jerame Tuman and backup OL Oliver Ross, might get the smallest tender ($563,000). Their compensation would be a draft pick in the round they were selected originally. In the case of those four players, that's a seventh (Brown), third (Zereoue) and fifth (Tuman and Ross). Two others, backup TE Matt Cushing and long snapper Mike Schneck may not be tendered.
