Patriots Tender Mankins, Gostkowski and Woods

mankins030410

In an expected move, the Patriots tendered offers on OL Logan Mankins, kicker Stephen Gostkowski and linebacker Pierre Woods today. Here’s the explanation from ESPNBoston.com:

By placing a tender on a restricted free agent, a team establishes the compensation it would receive if the player is signed to an offer sheet by another team and that offer wasn’t matched.

Basically, if another team signs any of these three restricted free agents, the Patriots would be compensated with draft picks. For Logan Mankins (due to make $3.26 million) the compensation is high, a first and third round pick. Gostkowski ($1.75 million) would garner the Patriots a second round pick. Woods is a different story as a team could sign him with no compensation as he was a rookie free agent signing of the Patriots.
