RB Leonard Weaver, tendered

Posted by Danny O'Neil

Running back Leonard Weaver has been tendered, meaning that he will be a restricted free agent. He can negotiate with other teams once free agency begins at 9 p.m. PST on Thursday, but the Seahawks will have the right to retain him by matching any contract offer he signs. If they choose not to match, they will receive compensation for him in the form of a draft pick.

Still trying to clarify which level free-agent tender Weaver received. That will be updated later.

Update, 3:38 p.m. PST: Weaver was given a second-round tender. The offer is for $1.47 million. The Seahawks would receive a second-round pick as compensation if he signed with another team.

RB Alvin Pearman was not tendered. He therefore is free to sign with any team. It remains possible that he could come back to Seattle.

David Kirtman and Lance Laury were given tenders as well, making them exlusive-rights free agents. They can only sign with the Seahawks.

"Alvin Pearman" is a name that hasn't been heard in a while.

Pearman IS a restricted free agent. This is not in doubt. It is determined by the number of accrued seasons he has. What IS in doubt is whether or not he was TENDERED AN OFFER. Please learn a little about the sport you're covering; you're embarassing yourself.

I hope we are able to keep him. I think he has a lot of potenial to be very dangerous in our offense. A 2nd round pick wouldn't be too bad if we had to give him up either.

Hey Chris? Where are you getting your no it all information. Pearman was NOT TENDERED. That means unrestricted period. What part of that is not understandable? You're embarassing yourself.

I have a strong feeling that Josh Brown will be offered a contract by and sign with the Cowboys. I hope, however, that does not happen.

I hope our players that are now under free agency consider the bigger picture .... Seattle can be a condender for a super bowl run with just a few more key acquistions.

Go Hawks!
