Fullback Leonard Weaver, a restricted free agent, intends to sign his one-year tender on Friday. His agent, Harold Lewis, and president Tim Ruskell both said that is the plan.
Friday was the deadline for restricted free agents to sign offer sheets with another team. Had Weaver signed an offer sheet, the Seahawks would have had the option of matching the offer and retaining Weaver or receiving a second-round pick as compensation.
The second-round tender is $1.42 million. Lewis said the intention of all sides and hope is that a long-term contract will still be worked out.
Weaver played the past three years with the Seahawks after making the team as an undrafted free agent from Carson-Newman in 2005. He became Seattle's starting fullback last season after Mack Strong's injury.

I'm a big Weaver supporter & hope to read about a long-term deal being signed shortly!

Weaver has improved his blocking alot which was really his big issue. Id say hes lost a step in his running in order to gain a step in the blocking arena so now he has plenty of talent in both. I too look forward to seeing a long term deal.
